Buy for me the rain, my darling, buy for me the rain
Buy for me the crystal pools that fall upon the plain
And I'll buy for you a rainbow and a million pots of gold
Buy it for me now, babe, before I am too old

Buy for me the sun, my darling, buy for me the sun
Buy for me the light that falls when day has just begun
And I'll buy for you a shadow to protect you from the day
Buy it for me now, babe, before I go away

Buy for me the robin, darling, buy for me the wing
Buy for me a sparrow, almost any flying thing
And I'll buy for you a tree, my love, where a robin's nest may grow
Buy it for me now, babe, the years all hurry so

I cannot buy you happiness, I cannot by you years
I cannot buy you happiness, in place of all the tears
But I can buy for you a gravestone, to lay behind your head
Gravestones cheer the living, dear, they're no use to the dead

Songwriters
Greg Copeland;Steve Noonan
