Lyrics
(Jimmy Rankin)

I was watching you on TV
Full of confidence and so savvy
I guess you're really something special
So I called you up for an autograph
Though you don't look much like your photograph
These days you're so d___ hard to get to

You still got a long way to go
Chasin' down that old rainbow
You still got a long way to go
To get where you are going

Ponytails and gold earrings
Cellular phones and fax machines
Oh what a glamorous life we're living
But it's plain to see what it's all about
When they chew you up and spit you out
In the end there's nothing left for giving

You still got a long way to go
Chasin' down that old rainbow
You still got a long way to go
To get where you are going

People come and people go
Some of them you'd like to know
Others leave you out in the cold and sour
There are very few you'll call a friend
When the s___ hits the fan
And you're all alone in the final hour

You still got a long way to go
Chasin' down that old rainbow
You still got a long way to go
We still got a long way to go
Chasin' down that old rainbow
We still got a long way to go
To get where you are going
