White's for the wedding that I'll never see blue is for heartaches that he gave to me
Green were those two eyes that stole him away
Gray were the darks skies on that tragic day
Black was the gun that I drew from my side
Red fload the blood where's my false lover's died
Brown was the earth that they threw on his grave
Yellow the flower that over him wave
[ piano ]
Black was the robe on the old judge that day
White was my face when he said you must pay
Blue are the tears that I shed in myself red are the roses that other folks dwell
Gold was my hair when they first sentenced me it will be silver when they set me free
Gone is the rainbow that shone up above life lost its color when I lost my love
Life lost its color when I lost my love
