Here Comes That Rainbow Agian


The scene was a small roadside cafe

The waitress was sweeping the floor

Two truck drivers drinking their coffee

And two Okie kids by the door


"How much are them candies?" they asked her

"How much have you got?" she replied

"We've only a penny between us"

"Them's two for a penny," she lied


*** Chorus


         And the daylight grew heavy with thunder

         With the smell of the rain on the wind

         Ain't it just like a human

         Here comes that rainbow again


One truck driver called to the waitress

After the kids went outside

"Them candies ain't two for a penny"

"So what's it to you," she replied


In silence they finished their coffee

And got up and nodded goodbye

She called, "Hey you left too much money"

"So what's it to you," they replied


*** Repeat Chorus
