When you feel that you're out in the rain (When you feel that you're out in the rain) Think of me on that train (oh train) Cold observation car Lookin' for you in the dark. I'm lookin' for you but it's all in vain. I'll send a telegram from every station Fare thee well, Annabelle If your family wants a little information Say that I'm doin' swell. And when I come back With a pocketful full of jack You'll have somethin' grand to tell. Oh, they'll take you on a honeymoon vacation Fare thee well, Annabelle. Over the river, cheerio my dear (Over the river, cheerio my dear) Is where my journey starts I'm leavin' my heart of hearts Over that river, my darlin', here I go. (Over the river, here I go) Don't you cry my melancholy baby (Don't you, moan). Honey don't cry, kiss me goodbye I'll be seein' you, by and by. There's a locomotive puffin' at the station Baby, can't you hear the bell I know you need a little consolation Fare thee well, Annabelle. I'll wire you from every station Soon as the train pulls out Full of information For all your little friends in doubt. When you get to feelin that you're out in the rain I'll tell you what to do Just think of me honey, on a Pullman train Thinkin' of nobody but sweet little you. Now the locomotive's leavin' the station Listen to them ringin' a bell I'll be thinkin' about you Every minute, Annabelle. I'm leavin', honey I'm leavin' I'm leavin' you, my sweet Annabelle. Fare thee well, my Annabelle, I'm goin' Fare thee well, my Annabelle. Fare thee well, my Annabelle, be well, My pretty little Annabelle. NOTES: The 3 sisters, Martha, Connee & Helvetia (Vet), were known for their very intricate harmonies in vocal jazz. Some refer to this as 'swing' jazz. They were affectionately known as 'The Bozzies' by their enthusiastic fans - Website http://www.bozzies.org/ (Transcribed by David Story - October 2013) ******************** As performed by RUDY VALLEE, ANN DVORAK and CHORUS in the film "Sweet Music": RUDY VALLEE: I would like to have a little information Have you seen Annabelle I expected her to meet me at the station (I don't know Annabelle) She's a girl with a dashing way She is dressed very smart and gay (Would you mind introducing us) (What a time we'd have in my Cabriolet) (Listen ladies to my soulful intonation) (Paging Miss Annabelle) (She'll be followed by a lovely aggregation) (When they ring that engine's bell) (Take me with you, no me, no me, no me) (No me, me, me, me, me) (Pardon me, sir, but what is your destination) Just a nice padded cell ANN DVORAK: I expected him to meet me at the station Come along, Lulubelle If he doesn't come I'll die of aggravation (Just be calm, Miss Annabelle) Do you think he is leaving me flat (Honey my man did me like that) (Took my money, my jewel'ry too) (I hates to say it, but I still loves that rat) Do you think he'd telephone a cancellation (Don't give up, Miss Annabelle) (Maybe he's along a little celebration) (And he's stooled in some hotel) Goodness, I'm a mess and I need another dress (I can fix you up right swell) Oh, where is the cause of all my agitation (Step this way, Miss Annabelle) (Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago and all points West) (Train leaving on Track Twenty-Six, Bo-o-o-ard) RUDY VALLEE: Over the river and cheerio, my dear Here's where my journey starts There's a teardrop glistenin' In your heart of hearts Over that river and here I go, my dear Stifle your sobs and moans Can't you hear that whistlein' My Mister Casey Jones There's a locomotive puffin' at the station Fare thee well, Annabelle And I know you need a little consolation Don't pretend, I can tell When you feel that you're out in the rain Think of me in that Pullman train On a cold observation car Looking for you in the dark, all in vain I will send a telegram at every station Fare thee well, Annabelle If your family wants a bit of information Say that I'm doin' swell And when I come back with a pocketful full of jack You'll have something grand to tell 'Cause I'll take you on a honeymoon vacation Fare thee well, Annabelle ANN: I appreciate your words of consolation RUDY: Fare thee well, Annabelle ANN: But I'd rather have a Pullman reservation RUDY: Not today, Annabelle For I've just got the price of my fare And enough for a parlour chair ANN: I've the price of a ticket, dear Even though I may go broke, I don't care (Sir, it's time, the train is pulling from the station) RUDY: Fare thee well, Annabelle ANN: When do we go on that honeymoon vacation RUDY: Maybe soon, but who can tell ANN: Well, suppose my dear, that while I'm waiting here I should fall for someone swell RUDY: Did you say that you can buy a reservation Get on board, Annabelle (Dance Routine) (You can have a happy honeymoon vacation) (Fare thee well, Annabelle) RUDY: Don't you think we make a dandy combination (Fare thee well, Annabelle) ANN: Buy some fish, Lulubelle, for the cat (Honey Lamb, I'll tend to that) RUDY: Better wise up that cat of yours That she's moving soon to our little flat ANN: How my folks would love this little celebration (Yes they would, Annabelle) RUDY: All your folks would start collapsin' 'round the station When they heard that choo-choo bell ANN: But I just don't care 'Cause it isn't their affair RUDY: Say, I hear that brakeman yell (All Aboard!) So be good and cut out all your dissipation (Fare thee well, Annabelle) (Annabelle, fare thee well) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2013)
