Catch A Rainbow

  • (Ian Walker)

    Catch a rainbow, fly it high
    Weave its colours through the sky
    Hold the colours, spin them fast
    Make your sunshine rainbow last

    Don't go chasing that pot of gold
    It's only a story you know
    It shines for a fool so I've been told
    Hang on to your rainbow

    With friends around to lend a hand
    You stand four square and tall
    But when fairweather friendship ends
    And you're trying not to fall

    All day long you sang your song
    Each line in tune you played
    But when cold dark nighttime's coming on
    And the music starts to fade

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1987:] This started life trying to be a song for children, but changed somewhere along the way. It simply says, when times are bad hang on to your dreams. (Notes Ian Walker, 'Flying High')
