e)
D7 
 
G 
 
Rain starts to fall and the  
D7 
sun fades away
C 
Memories start calling  
G 
another new day
 
It's hard to keep tryin'  
D7 
to reach for a star
 
With  
C 
no one beside me but my old  
G 
guitar
 
But I  
C 
gotta 
 
 
D7 
keep movin' I  
C 
know how you tried
 
Chasin' a  
G 
Rainbow 'till the  
D7 
day that I  
G 
die
 
Just thinkin' over the  
D7 
years of my life
 
My  
C 
many proud moments my  
G 
struggles and strife
 
The days of good fortune when a  
D7 
good gal was mine
C 
How foolish of me to have  
G 
left her behind

Repeat #2

 
My mind keeps on wanderin' over  
D7 
things in my past
 
The  
C 
money I made but  
G 
couldn't make last
 
The vows that I've broken the  
D7 
lies that I told
C 
Mistakes that I've made in my  
G 
quest for life's gold
Repeat #2
 
How often I think of the  
D7 
things I have missed
 
All the  
C 
girls that I knew that I  
G 
never 
 
kissed
 
All the dares that were offered and  
D7 
never did try
 
Lost  
C 
many good memories  
G 
how foolish was I
Repeat #2
 
Of prairies and houses I've  
D7 
left them behind
 
I  
C 
had for my wish the  
G 
best life of mine
 
From old California to the  
D7 
cold eastern sea
 
Then  
C 
back through the southlands to  
G 
old 
 
Tennessee
 
But I  
C 
gotta 
 
 
D7 
keep movin' I  
C 
know how you tried
 
Chasin' a  
G 
Rainbow 'till the  
D7 
day that I  
G 
die 
 
 
C 
 
G 
 
D7 
 
G
