Agatha’s Rainbow

Agatha Jane was twelve years old in October ‘29
The day the banks all closed their doors and a place called Wall Street died
But her father held his hand in hers, said “Everything is fine
The land will not forsake us and the good Lord will provide.”

The crops that year were not as great as the year before
But her father shrugged and calmly said, “Next year there’ll be more”
The winter left without a drop; in the spring the sun was bright
And Aggie’s mother asked her girl to pray for rain each night

‘Cause don’t you know there’s bound to a rainbow after every rain
God himself will smile upon his people of the plains
Bring thunder, Lord and lightening to ease the land from pain
And don’t forget the rainbow for Agatha Jane

Summer passed without a storm; the wheat died in the ground
Then the winds came howling through to blow the dust around
The dirt piled high upon the eaves like snow in summertime
Rain was just a memory and a prayer at suppertime

Aggie’s father went to town, he knew the times were bad
But half the stores were boarded up, there was no work to be had
And everywhere he looked he saw men whose hopes had died
He squared his shoulders, turned around, and swore that he’d survive

‘Cause don’t you know there’s bound to a rainbow after every rain
God himself will smile upon his people of the plains
Bring thunder, Lord and lightening to ease the land from pain
And don’t forget the rainbow for Agatha Jane

Just like pioneers of old with strength of heart and hand
Aggie’s father kept his faith with God and with the land
But year by dusty year went by without a single change
The only thing that grew up strong was Agatha Jane

Then one morning Aggie woke and could not believe her eyes
She ran outside to see the clouds covering the sky
And as she looked up, wondering, she heard the thunder’s call
Turned her face into the wind and felt the first drops fall

The rain came down in silver floods
Healed the land with liquid love
And Aggie danced in the knee-high mud
Like a newborn Christian soul

‘Cause don’t you know there’s bound to a rainbow after every rain
God himself will smile upon his people of the plains
Bring thunder, Lord and lightening to ease the land from pain
And don’t forget the rainbow for Agatha Jane


No, He won’t forget the rainbow for Agatha Jane

I think what makes satan so attractive to others is
that he tastes like chocolate...
....and he played real drums

fallendiva,

What a nice write! Might be a bit long for a song, but that's never discourage me . . . and shouldn't you. Good luck with it!

Regards,

Deej
