You can hear this recording at YouTube:


MY RAINBOW TRAIL KEEPS WINDING ON
Words and music by Elsie McWilliams.
As recorded by Mrs. Jimmie Rodgers [Carrie Rodgers], 1937. (Bluebird B-7339-A)

1. There’s a golden land of dreams that all true lovers find
At the end of the rainbow bright,
But somehow it seems that I cannot find mine
Though I’ve sought it with all of my might.

2. My rainbow trail keeps winding on,
There is no end, it seems;
But its colors glow because I know
You wait there in my dreams.

3. If you were only here beside me, dear,
To hold me by the hand,
We soon would reach that rainbow’s end
And find love’s golden land.

REPEAT 2 AND 3.
