           Rainbow on the River

< instrumental opening
with whistling by Elmo Tanner > 
 
There's a rainbow on the river,
the skies are clearing . . .
You'll soon be hearing a heavenly song,
all the day long . . .
 
When there's a rainbow on the river,
the birds are mating . . .
They're busy dating each other above,
happy in love . . .
 
Let's you and I go sailing,
along the rippling stream . . .
Holding hands together,
together we'll dream . . .
 
With a rainbow on the river,
you get the feeling . . .
Romance is stealing right out of the blue,
into your heart . . .
 
< instrumental close
with whistling by Elmo Tanner >
