JETHRO TULL - Rainbow Blues Lyrics

Through northern lights on back streets ---I told the coachman, ``just drive me on,It's the same old destinationBut 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.''Oh, but the rain wasn't made of waterAnd the snow didn't have a place in the sunSo I slipped behind a rainbowAnd waited till the show 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 meI said, ``oh, baby let us go for a ride.''And we came upon two drinks or fourAnd popped them oh so neatly inside.Oh, but the rain wasn't made of waterAnd the snow didn't have a place in the sunSo we slipped behind a rainbowAnd lay there until 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 airplaneBut don't let me catch those rainbow blues.
