Intro: G   Bm7 C Cm G  D7sus4  D7  G
                      
             G             Gmaj7
You used to dream yourself away each night
        
    B7               Em7    Am7
To places that you'd never been
        
    G             Em
On wings made of wishes
         
       Am7             D7sus4 D7
That you whispered to yourself.
                   
           G              Bm7
Back when every night the moon and you
            
       C             Cm             G
Would sweep away to places That you knew
                        
                D7             G
Where you would never get the blues
 
 B7         Em7              B7
Well now, whiskey gives you wings
              
          Em7      D        G
To carry each one of your dreams
 
 G                     Gmaj7                        
And the moon does not belong to you
          
    C  B7                Em7                B7
But I believe that your heart Keeps young dreams
                      
                         Em7             A7
 Well, I've been told To keep from ever growing old
     
       C
And a heart that has been broken
               
          D7sus4           D7
Will be stronger when it mends
                  
              G               Bm7
Don't let the blues stop you singing

C                            Cm
Darlin', you've only got a broken wing

                G           D7sus4 D7
Hey, you just hang on to my rainbow

G               C
Hang on to my rainbow

G               D7       G
Hang on to my rainbow sleeves
