Good For What Ails Ya


Here's Johnny Cash performing a Kris Kristofferson song. From 1986, it's "Here Comes That Rainbow Again". Made me feel good, how 'bout you?



"Here Comes That Rainbow Again"

~ by Kris Kristofferson

The scene was a small roadside cafe,
The waitress was sweeping the floor.
Two truck drivers drinking their coffee.
And two Okie kids by the door.
"How much are them candies?" they asked her.
"How much have you got?" she replied.
"We've only a penny between us."
"Them's two for a penny," she lied.

And the daylight grew heavy with thunder,
With the smell of the rain on the wind.
Ain't it just like a human.
Here comes that rainbow again.

One truck driver called to the waitress,
After the kids went outside.
"Them candies ain't two for a penny."
"So what's it to you?" she replied.
In silence they finished their coffee,
And got up and nodded goodbye.
She called: "Hey, you left too much money!"
"So what's it to you?" they replied.

And the daylight was heavy with thunder,
With the smell of the rain on the wind.
Ain't it just like a human.
Here comes that rainbow again.

Ah, the inestimable "Man in Black"; I've got a couple of his songs on my MP3 player...although that ain't one of 'em. It was nice, though.

He'll be missed by many...
