About This Song


This is what I call a light-hearted country song. It is about a husband, wife, and their son. Something happens to help them put aside their daily concerns.

Feedback Requested


I would like to receive comments on or suggestions for the lyrics or music.

First off, if you want people to take your songs seriously, DO A NOTICEABLY BETTER JOB OF TUNING YOUR GUITAR.

A simple suggestion to help you write better songs: 1) study songs with GREAT LYRICS (really dive into the lyrics and figure out why AND HOW the song really moves you), and 2) study songs that are MUSICALLY OUTSTANDING (take them apart and try to figure out what’s “functionally” happening with the melody and chords).

Best wishes in all your songwriting endeavors!

A Rainbow Just for Us

Written by Walter Lamberg

Verse 1
[C] I know I promised to go over the [G] bills tonight,
But, honey, I’m guessing [D] we’ll have another fight.
[C] Put off that trip we planned, [G] oh that is tough.
Forget about trading in for that [D] brand new truck.
[am7] I swear I can’t beg or borrow or [C] steal any [D] luck.

Chorus
[G] Say, look, it stopped raining.
[D] Let’s take that walk now.
[am7] Let’s hold hands. Let’s not fuss.
[G] We’ll put aside our worries for [D] just a little while.
[D] Hey, this will make you smile.
[am7] There’s a rainbow just for [D] us.
A bright blue [am7] sky and a rainbow just for [D] us.

Verse 2
I know I’m supposed to have that talk with Bobby.
His grades and his attitude ain't been real good lately.
I’ll say, there’s more to life than what your friends been saying.
Wearing ear plugs, taking calls, and all that texting.
And when did you get too old for church and praying?

Chorus Repeat

Bridge
[C] Sometimes I feel I’m ten years older than I am.
[G] Sometimes I’m sure my back’s going out again.
[C] But then I think of Bobby when [G] he was our little [D] man. [C]
[am7] And I think of you and me, how good it’s [D] been.

Chorus Repeat

Tag: [C] A rainbow just for [G] us.
