Subject: Lyr Add: GONE THE RAINBOW (PP&M)
Here are the lyrics from the Peter, Paul and Mary Web Site, http://www.downeast.net/ppm/ -

GONE THE RAINBOW
(Stookey/Travers/Yarrow/Okun)
Pepamar Music Inc. ASCAP

(Chorus:) Shule, shule, shule-a-roo,
Shule-a-rak-shak, shule-a-ba-ba-coo.
When I saw my Sally Babby Beal
Come bibble in the boo shy Lorey.

Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill;
Who could blame me, cry my fill;
Every tear would turn a mill,
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

(Chorus)

I sold my flax, I sold my wheel,
To buy my love a sword of steel;
So it in battle he might wield,
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

(Chorus)

Oh my baby, oh, my love,
Gone the rainbow, gone the dove.
Your father was my only love;
Johnny's gone for a soldier.

(Chorus)


It's from the (Moving) LP.

-Joe Offer-

Wow! I have apparently found (and fixed) a post from before Joe Offer knew how to insert line breaks. Now thatís ancient history! --JoeClone, 11-Mar-02.
