Sing Me A Rainbow



Josie, it's been a long hard day . 
Down the road to where it's at 
I must have lost my way . 
When I got there, they said I was too late. 
Now you're the only one can get me straight. 

So won't you sing me a rainbow, Josie, 
Roll me a song. 
Just tonight make it right 
Cause it's been wrong for oh so long. 
There's lots of shades of darkness, Josie,
Deep inside a man. 
So sing me a rainbow if you can. 

The train I went to meet had come and gone. 
Seems like I spend all my time 
Gettin' off and gettin' on. 
I sold my mind 
And gave my dreams away. 
And tomorrow I'll start lookin' 'round for yesterday, 
But til then... 
Singme a rainbow, Josie, 
Roll me a song. 
Just tonight makes it right, 
Cause it's been wrong for oh so long.
There's lots of kinds of hunger, Josie, 
You don't understand.
So sing me a rainbow if you can... 
If you can, if you can. 
Sing me a rainbow if you can.
