8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
At the end of the rain -bow there's hap -pi -ness.
And to find it how oft -en I've tried,
But my life is a race just a wild goose chase,
And my dreams have all been de -nied.
Why have I al -ways been a fail -ure, What can the rea -son be?
I won -der it the world's to blame, I won -der if it could be me?
I'm Al -ways Chas -ing Rain -bows,
Watch -ing clouds drift -ing by.
My schemes are just like all my dreams,
End -ing in the sky.
Some fel -lows look and find the sun -shine, I al -ways look and find the rain.
Some fel -lows make a win -ing some -time, I nev -er e -ven make a gain, Be -lieve me,
I'm Al -ways Chas -ing Rain -bows,
Wait -ing to find a lit -tle blue -bird in vain.
