Find A Rainbow

Lyrics: Sarah Fulcher
Music: Sarah Fulcher

Sung a few times by Sarah Fulcher with Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders in 1973. Partly improvised and it's difficult to make out the lyrics from the recordings. See here for an interview where Sarah Fulcher discusses her work with Garcia.

Did you ever [find] a rainbow
Looking out through the [dawning]
Go find a rainbow

I see sun and I see rain
What they may be ...
They're not the same as yesterday
Not the same as yesterday

Did you ever kiss a new-born baby
Or find a [puddle of rain] by your window
Or to find it's time to go
Just to find out it's a true
No no no no
You don't have to go
Just to find a rainbow
To find a rainbow
To find a rainbow

Did you ever see the [sun by way]
When you were so glad you hadn't passed them on the by-way
And Lord it's not their [crime]
Somehow it turned out into a [?]

You and I, we were always meant together
You and I, you and I, you and I

You and I could find a rainbow
[?] the very same
You don't have to look through a dirty window
To find a rainbow
If we ever leave, if we ever leave
Look for a rainbow
[etc]

Did you ever cross arainbow
And [sat] upon a little window
I believe in [wishing wells]
And grow up in the, in the sea
