Rainbow's End

Rainbow's End.mid


Back in West Virginia, way up in the mountains
In a valley by the river's bend
There's some land my family's owned for generations
Great Grandpa named this place the Rainbow's End

At the age of eighteen I went to serve my country
And I did my duty proud and well
Met a lot of friends there and listened to the stories
Of this country's beauty they would tell

I wonder how the older folks are doing tonight
I wonder what's become of my friend
I wonder if the skies are cloudy or bright there
Over at the Rainbow's End

When the time had come and I was finished with my service
I knew the very thing that I would do
I set out 'cross the nation to see if all the stories
That my friends had told me could be true

I wandered through the Smokies, roamed the Appalachians
Visited the Rocky Mountain's sides
Saw Grand Canyon's majesty, the Redwood forest's tallest tree
Waded in the western seaboard's tides

I wonder how the older folks are doing tonight
I wonder what's become of my friend
I wonder if the skies are cloudy or bright there
Down along the old river bend

I can see the smoke from the farm house chimney
I can smell my mama's apple pie
I can hear the church bells ringin' in the valley
I can feel a tear in my eye

Walkin' down the road I can see my best friend Davie
Right behind him is his brother Paul
Further down the way I can see their sister Mary
She's the one I'm missing most of all

I'm staying with the old folks at home tonight
I'm dancing with my new best friend
The stars, they sure do shine so bright tonight all
Up above the Rainbow's End
