Gonna Find Me a Bluebird
by Marvin Rainwater

Gonna find me a bluebird
Let him sing me a song
‘Cause my heart’s been broken
Much too long
Gonna chase me a rainbow
Through a heaven of blue
‘Cause I’m all through crying over you
There was a time my love was needed
My life completed, my dreams come true
Then came the time my life was haunted
My love unwanted, all for you

Gonna find me a bluebird
Let him sing me a song
‘Cause my heart’s been broken
Much too long
Gonna chase me a rainbow
through’ a heaven of blue
‘Cause I’m all through crying over you

Gonna guess when Marvin Rainwater was performing on the day memorialized in this photo album that he and his band performed the very popular “Gonna Find Me a Bluebird.” Gonna guess that in the first photo Marvin is signing the headshot above. Gonna guess Lorraine made most of the photos and assembled this photo album. Eagle-eyed viewers are gonna spot in the upper right corner of the photo above: Patsy Cline!
