Topic: Singing About Weather

Just a simple song I wrote this morning. Wife's far away visiting family and we're have interesting weather patterns going on in the east...how the song came to mind.

Singing about Weather by Jeff Gilpin


12/8/2018




[A]Singing about weather


[Bm7]Thinking about you


[A]Singing the songs


[Bm7]Just something to do




[A]Weather don’t change


[Bm7]Just keeps coming


[A]Thinking of you


[Bm7]Switch from singing to humming


There’s [D]something about you


You [E]stay on my mind


[F#m]I find you there


Most [G]any old [E7]time


Cloudy or sunny


Rainy or cold


Weather don’t do


What the weatherman told




But there you are



Rain or shine


Like the tap of my toes


You’re keeping my time




There’s something about you

You stay on my mind


I find you there

Most any old time



Sunny up north


South getting snow


Weather don’t know


Which way to go




I wish you’d come


Straight back to me


Straighten my thinking


Set my mind free




There’s something about you

You stay on my mind


I find you there

Most any old time

Re: Singing About Weather

Jeff I enjoyed the weather picture you painted with that song.     

Re: Singing About Weather

Nice thoughts in this one, Jets ... hope your family gets home safe and soon. Here in Nova Scotia, we have three very strong factors (Gulf stream, Labrador current, jet stream) which can change our weather quickly. From November 1 to March 31, we will often have 30-degree temperature swings over 24-hour periods. I grew up hearing: "If you don't like the weather here, just wait an hour."     

Re: Singing About Weather

Thanks you all. TF -  Nova Scotia sounds like it has some more interesting weather swings than northern Virginia.

Nice tune Jeff.  I like how the sound of that A-Bm7 combo sets the "mood" of the song. Excellent prosody.

It got me looking back on some of the tunes I've written over the years and I dug up five weather-related songs, although I'm pretty sure there are a couple more.  I find it fascinating how we use weather terms to describe relationships.  (warm, cool, hot, cold, steamy, stormy, etc)

Re: Singing About Weather

Hey Ken - Thanks for checking it out and nice hearing from you. That A-Bm7 thing was how I got this song started as an idea in my head, but I had to figure out what the actual chords were that I was hearing in my mind....took a while, but after that it started to flow. Then I had to come up with some complimentary chorus chords, but that was a bit easier. I do agree that weather and life songs are fascinating, and I too have written a bunch.
