Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Here's an unfinished song. Please feel free to add, subtract & edit in any way you see fit (or totally reject if you so wish!). It fits to the tune of: "We're Bound for Botany Bay".

Come all ye who voyage on The Rainbow,
Come all ye who make up the Crew.
We're bound over yonder horizon,
Not knowing what work's left to do.

                Singing tooralie, ooralie addity
                Singing tooralie, ooralie ay.
                Singing tooralie, ooralie addity,
                The Rainbow's in sail & makes way.

Our voyage started here in old London,
We'd water & food in the hold.
With map table & the meridian
And oilskins to keep out the cold.


The compass was set for Americay,
For the United States we were bound.
The Union Flag & Old Glory
At the masthead could proudly be found.


We've all been beset by life's tragedies,
We've felt more than our fair share of pain.
We did what we could to relieve it
And we'd do it again & again.

(August 2015)
