Lyric Rainbow Blues


I told the coachman, ``Just drive me on,
It s the same old destination
but a different world to sing upon.
So he threw back his head and he counted.
I jumped out about five to nine.
said, ``Mister, get me to the stage on time.
Oh, but the rain wasn t made of water
and the snow didn t have a place in the sun
so I slipped behind a rainbow
and waited till the show had done.

I packed my ammunition.
Inside the crowd was shouting, ``Encore ,
it wasn t me they were shouting for.
So when the tall dark lady smiled at me
I said, ``Oh, baby let us go for a ride.
And we came upon two drinks or four
and popped them oh so neatly inside.

Oh, but the rain wasn t made of water
and the snow didn t have a place in the sun
so we slipped behind a rainbow
and lay there until we had done.

Let me pack you deep in my suitcase.
or you can drive me to the airplane
but don t let me catch those rainbow blues.
