Rainbow Dancer
©Linda Allen 1982

Mama wanted to be a Rainbow Dancer
Wanted to be a singer in a band
I remember brown eyes dreaming
As she sang and rocked her babies gently down

Mama came to see me at the tavern
Came to hear me singin' with the band
Her eyes were full and shining
I could see the dream reflected in her eyes

Mama could have been a Rainbow Dancer
But a woman's dreams are hard to hold
So she raised up four strong children
And she placed the rainbow deep within my soul

Now I sing songs about the rainbow
And it always ends at Mama's door
And I see a young girl dancing
And I hear her singing deep within my soul
