Got on a bus in Memphis, Destination Rome. Georgia ain't no paradise But a place I just call home. I sat next to a broken hearted bride She was cryin', tryin' so hard to hide Her selfish sorrow.
I tried to get her talkin' She didn't have much to say She asked me for a map to death row But I didn't know the way She had lost a million in the game One look out the window at the pine trees and the rain It wasn't her day.
Multicolored lady You ain't like no rainbow I've ever seen Multicolored lady Angry red, passion blue, but mostly shades of green
Midnight came and brought more rain, Nothing seemed to ease her pain. The hours that we talked seemed like minutes all in vein. I watched as her tears kept runnin' wide Bye and bye and bye, way back after a while She started smilin'.
Multicolored lady You ain't like no rainbow I've ever known. Multicolored lady Come go with me, I'll take you to my home
