Rainbow Blues

This song is by Blackmore's Night and appears on the album Ghost Of A Rose (2003).

This song is a cover of "Rainbow Blues" by Jethro Tull.
The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

And then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

Through northern lights on back streets
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 got out about five to nine
And I waved at the stage door-keeper
Said: "Mister, get me to the stage on time"

And then 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 laid back till we had done

I packed my ammunition
Inside the crowd was shouting: "Encore"
But I had a most funny feeling
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

And then 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 laid back till we had done

Let me pack you deep in my suitcase
Oh, there's sure to be room for two
Or you can drive me to the airplane
But don't let me catch those rainbow blues

And then 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 laid back till we had done

Yeah, so then the rain wasn't made of water
And the snow didn't have a place in the sun
So we slipped behind the rainbow
And laid back till we had done

The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun
The rain wasn't made of water
The snow didn't have a place in the sun
