On the record the coda repeats and fades, I've included their
live ending as it appears in the video clip noted above.
Personally, I think it would have sounded better ending on
the vocal harmonies on the three 'rainbows', without adding
the couple of bars on the end.

       Couldn't see, or even feel the ground,
D                     G/D
       A pot of gold,      I was sold,

          Bm      F#m7      Em                      D
And I was ...dream-----ing   ...of a love I had to share,
      Bm       F#m7     G                                A
Never  ...think----ing ...you were here, and you were there!

          Bm      F#m7     G                             A
Feel like ...sing-----ing  ...all the colours you con - vey!


[Verse 2]
D                    G/D 
       Come on home,    ...keep me warm,
G/D *                        D
       And love me 'til the new day's born,
D                   G/D
       And I pray      ...that you will stay...
