Allman Brothers Band – Multicolord Lady Lyrics

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

Oh, by the way, I’m bound for Rome.
