Blackmore's night

Rainbow Blues
Ian Anderson

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.

Oh, 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.

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 jumped out about five to nine.
And I waved at the stage door-keeper
Said, "Mister, get me to the stage on time."

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.

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.

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.
