Gregg AllmanMulti-Colored Lady

I got on the bus in Memphis, destination Rome But Georgia ain't no paradise, a place I could call home. I sat next to a broken hearted bride She was crying, trying so hard to hide her selfish sorrow. I tried to get her talking she didn't have much to say. Asked me for a map to Desboro, but I didn't know the way. She had lost a million tears today. One look out my window at the pine trees and the rain It wasn't her day, no. Multi-colored lady You ain't like no rainbow I've have ever seen. Multi-colored lady Angry red, passion blue but mostly shades of green. Midnight came and brought more rain But nothing seemed to ease her pain. The hours that we talked seemed like minutes all in vain. Now I see these tears keep running wild But by by by well well, after awhile she sat smiling. Mulit-colored lady You ain't like no rainbow I've ever known. Mulit-colored lady Come go with me and I'll take you to my home. Oh by the way I'm bound for Rome. © 2018
