A Song For A Sunday.

Here Comes That Rainbow Again.

The lyrics, hereunder, were inspired by the novel ‘The Grapes of Wrath’, written by American writer (and winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature) the late John Steinbeck (1902-1968).

Vocals and Lyrics: American retired country singer, songwriter, and actor Kris Kristofferson.

Here Comes That Rainbow Again.

The scene was a small roadside café.
The waitress was sweeping the floor.
Two truck drivers drinking their coffee,
And two Okie* kids by the door.
“How much are them candies?”
They asked her.
“How much have you got?”
She replied.
“We’ve only a penny between us”,
“Them’s two for a penny,”
she lied.
And the daylight grew heavy with thunder,
With the smell of the rain on the wind.
Ain’t it just like a human?
Here comes that rainbow again.

One truck driver called to the waitress,
After the kids went outside.
“Them candies ain’t two for a penny”.
“So what’s it to you?”
She replied.
In silence they finished their coffee,
Then got up and nodded goodbye.
She called, “Hey, you left too much money”.
“So what’s it to you?”
They replied.
And the daylight was heavy with thunder,
With the smell of the rain on the wind.
Ain’t it just like a human?
Here comes that rainbow again.

*Okie – An inhabitant of Oklahoma.
