|Marvin Percy Rainwater was born in 1925.
A classically-trained pianist, Rainwater turned to guitar
after an accident injured his right thumb. His first band
featured Roy Clark on lead guitar.
Rainwater wrote "I Gotta Go Get My Baby" which was
recorded by Teresa Brewer. Although Rainwater was
more interested in songwriting than recording, a performance on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts TV program landed
Rainwater appearances on Godfrey's morning show.
Rainwater's "Gonna Find Me A Bluebird" reached number 3 on the
country charts and 18 on the pop charts.
