A D/A A D/A
A F#m Bm D/E E
Why are there so many songs about rainbows,
A E/G# F#m7 A/E D(add 2) D/E Esus
And what's on the-- oth—er--- side?
A E/F# F#m7 Bm7 D/E E
Rainbows are-- visions, but only illusions,
A E/G# F#m7 A/E D(add 2) D(add 2)/A
And rainbows have nothing to-- hide.
So we've been told, and some choose to believe it; I know they're wrong; wait and see.
Bm7 E D/E C#m7 E/F# F#7
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection;
Bm7 Esus A D/A A D/A
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it; look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing? And what do we think we might see?
Someday weÕll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me.
E/G# F#m7 A/E
All of us under its spell

Have you-- been half-asleep? And have you heard voic--es?
Bb F/A Gm7 Bb/F Eb(add 2) Eb/F Fsus
IÕve heard them calling my--- name.
Bb F/G Gm7 Cm7 Eb/F F
Is it the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
Bb F/A Gm7 Eb(add 2) Eb
The voice might be-- one in the------ same.
IÕve heard it too many times to ignore it. ItÕs something that IÕm supposed to be.
