about

"Stomp Folk" is a combination of two types of recording.
Tracks 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9 are all studio recordings done by XYZ Audio in San Diego. Tracks 2, 4, 6, 8, & 10 -the in between songs- were all recorded by Rainbow Girls themselves, using an old tape recorder. The quality of the even-numbered tracks may be less than the odds, but what they lack in quality, they make up for in energy and spontaneity. Eat it fresh people!

Track Name: Old Man Goat
Old man goat he's cryin' out back
Cryin' out back, can you hear him now?
Old man goat he's standin' on the table
Yellin' out back, what is it now?
Close the barn door cause the sun has set
And it's time to play real loud...

And we'll be stompin' at the rainbow
Waiting for the next show
Somewhere in this party town.
And we'll be stompin' at the rainbow
Waiting for the next show
Won't be long til it comes round.

Jonah stop itchin' cause you're better now
Yeah you're better now after all this time.
We fell slave to the old goat's interest
Got no time for this shit, let me out.
Runnin' in packs feel the dust collide
You'll be satisfied when the morning comes

And we'll be stompin' at the rainbow
Waiting for the next show
Somewhere in this party town.
And we'll be stompin' at the rainbow
Waiting for the next show
Won't be long til it comes round.

These old shoes took me through the desert
Saw the curve of the Earth comin' round"
Track Name: Tin Tang Game
"Hang your head and cry Tom Dooley
You killed Laura but you won’t fool me
She’s long gone, we’ve just begun
One long long pull
This here ain’t no pageant oh
Not a lass will take a beau
So keep your eyes up high and your hands to your sides
One long long pull

To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me ride-o, to my rudie-o, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o

Swing round and fly ye daisy
But be no one’s baby
The rules have changed in the tin tang game
One long long pull
So wobble as the cukoo bird
Stray from the path trod by the herd
Block your mind from the omni-eye
One long long pull

To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me ride-o, to my rudie-o, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o

‘Cause I pop my whip and I bring the blood
I make my leaders take the mud
Grab the wheels and we turn ‘em round
One long long pull
There’s blood on the saddle and blood on the ground
Yeah rough tough man we’re gonna lay you down
We told you we won’t have no more
One long long pull

To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me ride-o, to my rudie-o, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o

First they call you crazy
Then you’re deemed a baby
But the rules have changed in the tin tang game
One long long pull
So wobble as the cukoo bird
Stray from the path trod by the herd
Block your mind from the omni eye
One long long pull

To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o
To me ride-o, to my rudie-o, my ride o
To me roll, to me roll, my ride o"
Track Name: Dark Night Dinner
"It's a dark night dinner, tea for two
we got candles on the table and ham in the stew
and the love stuck hun with her hand on the buns
will be singing the whole day through.
Well honey and whiskey are mighty fine
if you got some gin or that red, red wine,
then let's roll one up, take a puff
cause tonight we dance divine.

Gotta pack my bags, remove the tags,
get far from the city where your future lags.
Gotta find a space, any place
where the smog won't make me gag.
Where there's golden beans, diamond trees,
grizzly bears, and them honey bees
Where your friends gather round to the hum or sound
of the people with movin' feet.

Well we hit the ground in early fall and we slowed down to a halt.
Well we hit the ground like a brick wall and we slowed down to a halt.

You're a part-time winner, but it's time you lose
Put the pedal to the metal on the road you choose
Don't hesitate, waste time, or wait
Grab the reins of life and move
Cause honey and whiskey are mighty fine
when the herbs and spice don't cost a dime,
but you can't get going if you're stuck every morning
in a bed decked out in vines.


But the road goes on, on and on
Keep on drivin' through dawn.
But the song has sung and the trippin' it ain't done
The last note has yet to be strummed.

But the road goes on, on and on
Keep on drivin' through dawn.
But the song has sung and the trippin' it ain't done
The last note has yet to be hummed...


Well we hit the ground in early fall and we slowed down to a halt.
Well we hit the ground like a brick wall and we slowed down to a halt.


It's a dark night dinner, tea for two
there'll be candles on the table and ham in the stew
And the love drunk home now full of stones
will be dancing 'neath the red, red moon.
It's a dark night dinner, tea for two
we got candles on the table and ham in the stew
And the red, red wine will go mighty fine
with the red, red, red, red moooon....
The red, red moooon...


But the road goes on, on and on
Keep on drivin' through dawn.
But the song has sung and the trippin' it ain't done
The last note has yet to be strummed.

But the road goes on, on and on
Keep on drivin' through dawn.
But the song has sung and the trippin' it ain't done
The last note has yet to be hummed..."
Track Name: Plan Bis
"Self contained as long as it rains

My feet they stand on Platform 1
Platform 27 is so far away.
My knee it swells like the elephant man
Don't need a cane to walk and I go as fast as I can.

Lone on the roof, hear the music rise
Feel the love drop, watch the water fly by
Kicked outta London, made our way to Paris
Followed the lion and he led us to Plan Bis.

I don't speak your language
I don't need to I can read your mind
I don't speak your language
But we all see the world behind big baby eyes

Drove though the rain all day to cross Germany,
Just to see a man shittin' naked 'neath a tree.
We travel mind to mind, stringland, foot on planes
No B-side pancakes, when you flip it's all the same.

I don't speak your language
I don't need to I can read your mind
I don't speak your language
But we all see the world behind big baby eyes

I can see my eyes (I found a place in the red hillside)
I can see my eyes (Where the gypsies go and hide)
Floaters, black particle dust (Hold the candle, feel the light)
Floaters, black particle dust (For it's your time)
I can see my eye
I can see my eye

Let's go down to the water
Lay me down beside the banks
Give our love to each other
And tomorrow you can join us on the train

Let's go down to the water
Lay me down beside the banks
Give our love to each other
And tomorrow you can join us on the train

Can't miss the train, can't miss the train, can't miss the train
Scuzzi ragazzi, ma we cannot be detained

I don't speak your language
I don't need to I can read your mind
I don't speak your language
But we all see the world behind big baby...

Let's go down to the water
Lay me down beside the banks
Give our love to each other
And tomorrow you can join us on the train

I don't speak your language
I don't need to I can read your mind
I don't speak your language
But we all see the world behind big baby eyes"
Track Name: Schallstadt
"Schallstadt we are waiting for the train!


Coyote ca-ca, coyote ca-ca....."
Track Name: Storm
"Mama what they said, I had to float away
just twelve years old.
You're crazy, their thoughts are so crazy
I'm on my own.
Sister, oh sister oh please don't you be afraid
of how sometimes you might just slip away, oh slip away.

No matter what they say, they'll steal your mind away
You sold your soul.
You're crazy, they'll turn you so crazy.
We're on our own.
Attention, they want it all
My head, it drops it drops like a ball, oh like a ball

And I said OHH
I can feel a storm brewin' up inside
And I said OHH

oh go and hide

And it feels feels feels so nice nice now
to be thinkin on my own
whatcha do, watcha do, well I don't know

And I said OHH

No matter what they say, oh they'll steal your mind away
you sold your soul.
You're crazy, they'll turn you so crazy

of how they'll try to buy and dominate, oh dominate

And I said OHH
I can feel a storm brewin' up inside
And I said OHH

Track Name: Spring Stop
"Have you seen the little spring stop
Little spring stop
Little spring stop

Let the music draw you to the top
Draw you to the top
Draw you to the top

Every now and then the clouds come to kiss the front door
Of a place you’ve never seen before

He has her spinnin like a top
Spinnin’ like a top
Spinnin’ like a top

Up here the music never stops
Music never stops
Music never stops

There’s always a fire hidin’ in the trees
And if you’re lookin’ for that kind of burn it’s the place to be

You’ll always hear the fire pop
Hear the fire pop
Hear the fire pop

Up here the dreamin’ never stops
Dreams never stop
Dreamin’ never stops"
Track Name: Painted Caves
"Hey daddy, oh hey daddy
I've been runnin', runnin', runnin' from you and your stories
Oh hey mama, oh hey mama
I was right there waiting for you when you called me
Hey sister, oh hey sister
won't you watch those things you do to them fools and oh
My brother, oh my brother
you gotta sing if you wanna do good in this world

When I crawled deep into that painted cave
I knew right then and there that I could be your slave
Honey there’s no reason left to be afraid
It looks like your guitars the only thing getting played
See you standin’ there, can’t help but stare
Those songs that you sing call em all up here
Rock those riffs they all dance along
But it won’t be long till I make you dance to my song

Hey daddy, oh hey daddy
I've been runnin', runnin', runnin' from you and your stories
Oh hey mama, oh hey mama
I was right there waiting for you when you called me
Hey sister, oh hey sister
won't you watch those things you do to them fools and oh
My brother, oh my brother
you gotta sing if you wanna do good in this world

Steeped in the spring, yeah sat a long time
Felt you wash right from my mind
Down the mountain water wash me free
‘n drop me off into the deep sea
Don’t worry honey baby you cant make me sad
But I ain’t gon lie I did want you bad
I like it how you rock it baby all moon long
But now Ill sing you my sweet song

~A capella breakdown~

When I crawled deep into that painted cave
I knew right then and there I coulda been your slave
Honey there’s no reason left to be afraid
it looks like your guitars the only thing getting laid
So won’t you come over here and taste me,
just like you would that whiskey…

Hey daddy, oh hey daddy
I've been runnin', runnin', runnin' from you and your stories
Oh hey mama, oh hey mama
I was right there waiting for you when you called me
Hey sister, oh hey sister
won't you WATCH those things you do to them fools and oh-
My brother, oh my brother
you gotta sing if you wanna do good in this world.

I crawled deep into that cave…"
