Under the Rainbow
(to the tune of “Over the Rainbow”)
Copyright © 2011 Kevin Ahern

This is a song I wrote in the early summer of 2011 when the rain just kept on hanging on too long. If you were in Oregon then, I think you know the feeling. The beautiful recording was by Abra Nardo and David Simmons (complete song recording downloadable HERE).

Sum-mer time in the valley
Cloud-y skies
Rain’s re-turned for the season
Not such a nice surprise

Oh my! Where did the sun go?
Gloomy days
Full of raindrops a-falling
One season out of phase

Tonight I hope I’ll see the sky
But if I can’t I hope it dries up one day
The weather forecast missed it bad
Now all the local folks are mad
A drizz-ly Sun-Day

Down here under the rainbow
Hue and cry
Birds fly over our rainbows
Just trying to stay dry

(Instrumental section)

Down here under the rainbow
People scoff
Longing to be like eagles
So as to get dried off

If it is not December yet
Here in the valley
Why am I so wet?
