RIDING A RAINBOW (STEVE DAFOE 2006)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS:

Fmaj7 Fmaj7 (HOLD HIGH E) Fmaj7
I'M TIRED OF THE PROMISES AND THE 'POT OF GOLD"
THE CHANGES YOU SAID WOULD HAPPEN....ARE GETTIN' OLD..
'CAUSE WAITING FOR YOU TO CHANGE IS LIKE....
Cm7 (PLUCK A & D MAINLY)
RIDING A RAINBOW TO THE END
RIDING A RAINBOW
NOTHING'S THERE AFTER HE BEND
JUST RIDING THE RAINBOW

VERSE 1:

C\\Fmaj7 (PLUCK IN THAT RANGE)
THEN:
Cm7 (2-3) IN THAT RANGE
THEN:
D---PLUCK HIGH E, B & G


VERSE 1:

YOU CHARMED YOUR WAY IN FROM DAY ONE
YOUR SMILE AND THOSE EYES OF BLUE
FROZE ME IN MY SPOT......
MY HEART DON'T USUALLY GET CAUGHT
BUT WITH YOU, I WAS DONE
I FORGOT HAT PAST PAIN HAS ALREADY TAUGHT

VERSE 2:

THE THING WITH PRETTY THINGS THOUGH
IT'S ONLY ABOUT THE OUTSIDE LAYER......
UNDERNEATH IS WHERE ALL THE GOLD'S SUPPOSED TO BE...
TIRED OF HANGING ONTO HOLLOW WORDS
'CAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR PLANS DON'T INCLUDE ME...

VERSE 3:

ALREADY BEEN TO THE PLACES WHERE YOU ARE
YOU'D DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT YOUR OWN STAR
I KNOW I AIN'T AN EXCEPTION TO THAT RULE...
LIKE FOOL'S GOLD...TIRED OF BEING THE FOOL
GONNA GO AND FIND A REAL GEM.....
