“She’s a Rainbow” – May 18th 1967 – (Mick Jagger -Keith Richards)

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
everywhere
She comes in colors

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue?
See the sky in front of you
And her face is like a sail
Speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold?
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev’rywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

The strings were arranged by John Paul Jones. It was 2 years before he joined Led Zeppelin and he was doing session work.
This was one of the first songs The Stones produced without manager Andrew Loog Oldham. They wanted to get rid of him, so they angered him away by going against his wishes in many aspects of Their Satanic Majesties Request.

Some rumors indicated that John, Paul, George and Ringo of The Beatles sang the “la-la-la” background vocal on this song but the backing vocals are Mick,Kieth,Bill & Brian, not the Beatles on this track.

This song choir was taken from “She Comes In Colors” Arthur Lee and Love
