Lyrics

Lyrics:
Pretty little Rainbow let me see you smile again, I'll kiss your tears all away. Like a ray of light that's shining thro' the night, You're guiding me on Love's way To the little place where I have built a little home, All that I need there is you. The light that's in your eyes, can make a paradise of my wigwam that's built for two. Your dear name Sets my heart a-flame, Rainbow, Rainbow, Come be mine! Whisper, dear words I long to hear Rainbow, Say it's for me that your bright eyes shine. Pretty little Rainbow let me see you smile again, I'll kiss your tears all away Like a ray of light that's shining thro' the night, you're guiding me on Love's way To the little place where I have built a little home, All that I need there is you. The light that's in your eyes, can make a paradise of my wigwam that's built for two.
Obligato
Pretty Rainbow mine, Let the lovelight shine, I want to see your smile again. Lead me on Love's way Be mine for aye, Dear Rainbow I've a little home, built for you alone. All that I need there is you. Rainbow, you know my wigwam is built for two.

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
