KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE lyrics - Rainbow Ride

KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"Rainbow Ride"

It had been midnight on the street
Someone had helped me to my feet
And said there's a taxi out there
Waiting to take you to your door

Driver said, your destination?
I said, take me to the fair
Time's a-wasting and I have to go
And close the evening there.

The golden coach is on the track
And ready set to fly
The rainbow ride will make its arc
And send me to the sky, to the sky

The tunnel of love is cold and lonely
In the hours before the dawn
But the ups and downs of the give
And take are not what I'm looking for

The Rainbow ride will take me
To where the Northern lights are born
All my days of trouble will be
Ice till the end of time.

The golden coach is on the track
And ready set to fly
The Rainbow ride will make its arc
And send me to the sky, to the sky

Rainbow take me, Rainbow send me
And place me where the sun becomes
A star::
Where I become a star.

Come flotsam, come jetsam
Get on the Rainbow ride
Come flotsam, come jetsam
The riff-raff, the raggle taggle

Come flotsam, come jetsam
The riff raff, the raggle taggle
Come flotsam, come jetsam
The riff raff, the raggle-taggle
And get on board that Rainbow ride
