After the war was over,
I was on my way home to you;
I saw a rainbow at midnight,
Out on the ocean blue.

The stars up in heaven were shining,
And the moon gave its light from above;
I saw your face in that rainbow,
It made me think of our love.

We'll build a home in the country,
And make all our dreams come true;
It's there we will make our heaven,
It's sweethearts for me and for you.

We'll build a home in the country,
Perhaps with a baby or two;
We'll name them after the rainbow,
Because it reminds me of you.

After this life is over,
After our journey is through;
We'll move to the land of the rainbow,
And live in the starry blue.

After this life is over,
It's after our journey is through;
We'll move to the land of the rainbow,
And live in the starry blue.
