    Intro riff:
[G] / / / [C] / / x2

[G]Why are there [Em]so many
[Am7]Songs about [D]rainbows
And [G]what's on the [Em]other [Am7]side [D]

[G]Rainbows are [Em]visions
But [Am7]only il[D]lusions
And [G]rainbows have [Em]nothing to [C]hide

[CM7]So we've been told and some choose to believe it
[Bm]I know they're [Bm7]wrong wait and see [B7]

[Am7]Someday we'll [D7]find it
The [Bm7]Rainbow Con[E7]nection
The [Am7]lovers, the [D7]dreamers and [G]me

Intro riff

[G]Who said that [Em]every wish
Would [Am7]be heard and [D]answered
When [G]wished on the [Em]morning [Am7]star [D]

[G]Somebody [Em]thought of that
And [Am7]someone be[D]lieved it
And [G]look what its [Em]done so [C]far

[CM7]What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
[Bm]What do we [Bm7]think we might see [B7]

[Am7]Someday we'll [D7]find it
The [Bm7]Rainbow Con[E7]nection
The [Am7]lovers, the [D7]dreamers and [G]me

[D]All of us [Em]under its [G]spell
We [C]know that it's probably [D]ma[Eb]gic

[G#]Have you been [Fm]half asleep
And [Bbm7]have you heard [Eb]voices
[G#]I've heard them [Fm]calling my [Bbm7]name [Eb]

[G#]Is this the [Fm]sweet sound
That [Bm7]calls the young [Eb]sailors
The [G#]voice might be [Fm]one and the [C#]same

[C#M7]I've heard it too many times to ignore it
[Cm]It's something that [Cm7]I'm supposed to be [C7]

[Bbm7]Someday we'll [D#7]find it
The [Cm7]Rainbow Con[F7]nection
The [Bbm7]lovers, the [D#7]dreamers and [G#]me

[Bbm7]La da da [Eb]dee da da [G#]doo
