  • Lyrics: She said that she don’t mind the rainy days and they come a lot this time a year The black clouds roll in from across the bay and then the sun just disappears She worked down by the docks in her younger days, she help stock the boats and log the catch A summer breeze was blowing threw her hair, she met a handsome fisherman She said she holds on to those days, ‘cause memories can sometimes fade She’ll never leave the Chesapeake They’d take his boat out on the Bay, on most Sunday afternoons On the water-till the sun went down, and then they’d wish upon the moon They planned to marry spring of sixty-eight, maybe raise a family But his draft card came and off he went, and that’s the last of him she’d see Elvis Presley, Flying nun, a telegram from Washington She’ll never leave the Chesapeake They come in SUV’s and mini vans, from towns like Falls Church and McLean They stay just long enough to get a tan, and curse the Gods when it rains She still dreams about those afternoons, though forty years have come and gone She found out that long ago, she always knew where she belonged She said she holds on to those days, ‘cause memories can sometimes fade She’ll never leave the Chesapeake
