Gregg Allman – Multi-Colored Lady lyrics

I got on the bus in Memphis, destination Rome
But Georgia ain't no paradise, a place I could call home.
I sat next to a broken hearted bride
She was crying, trying so hard to hide her selfish sorrow.

I tried to get her talking she didn't have much to say.
Asked me for a map to Desboro, but I didn't know the way.
She had lost a million tears today.
One look out my window at the pine trees and the rain
It wasn't her day, no.

Multi-colored lady
You ain't like no rainbow I've have ever seen.
Multi-colored lady
Angry red, passion blue but mostly shades of green.

Midnight came and brought more rain
But nothing seemed to ease her pain.
The hours that we talked seemed like minutes all in vain.
Now I see these tears keep running wild
But by by by well well, after awhile she sat smiling.

Mulit-colored lady
You ain't like no rainbow I've ever known.
Mulit-colored lady
Come go with me and I'll take you to my home.
Oh by the way I'm bound for Rome.
