Not sure if this is the one you are thinking of.
BUY FOR ME THE RAIN
by G. Copeland and S. Noonan
from Stars and Stripes Forever
Buy for me the rain, my darling, buy for me the rain;
Buy for me the crystal pools that fall upon the plain.
And I'll buy for you a rainbow and a million pots of gold.
Buy it for me now, babe, before I am too old.
Buy for me the sun, my darling, buy for me the sun;
Buy for me the light that falls when day has just begun.
And I'll buy for you a shadow to protect you from the day.
Buy it for me now, babe, before I go away.
Buy for me the robin, darling, buy for me the wing;
Buy for me a sparrow, almost any flying thing.
And I'll buy for you a tree, my love, where a robin's nest may grow.
Buy it for me now, babe, the years all hurry so.
I cannot buy you happiness, I cannot by you years;
I cannot buy you happiness, in place of all the tears.
But I can buy for you a gravestone, to lay behind your head.
Gravestones cheer the living, dear, they're no use to the dead.

Found at several places on the Internet:
1. I'm saving my money to buy you a rainbow
A rainbow to fit on your finger
After I've gone and bought you the rainbow,
I'll go out and I'll buy you the moon.
2. When we go walking side by side in the moonlight,
We count the stars as we go strolling by.
Maybe one day we'll own those beautiful diamonds
That glisten like the teardrops from your eye.
3. You know how I feel on a moment like this,
When hand in hand, when we reminisce.
Your eyes seem to glow when you whisper low,
"Oh, I really love you."
