Elvis Presley – Pocketful of Rainbows

 

“Pocketful of Rainbows” is a song from the 1960 Elvis Presley album, G.I. Blues, written by Fred Wise and Ben Weisman.
The song was recorded on May 6, 1960, at RCA Victors Hollywood studios for his 1960 film G. I. Blues.

In the film version Juliet Prowse (who lip-synched to Loulie Jean Norman’s voice) can be seen singing along with Elvis in a cable car in the small German tourist-town Rüdesheim am Rhein

In the 1996 movie Jerry Maguire, the director Cameron Crowe used an alternate version of “Pocketful of Rainbows”, slightly faster than the original one used in G.I. Blues.

Lyrics

I don’t worry
Whenever skies are gray above
Got a pocketful of rainbows
Got a heart full of love

Mister Heartache
I’ve found a way to make him leave
Got a pocketful of rainbows
Got a star up in my sleeve

Kiss me extra tender
Hold me extra tight
‘Cause I’m savin’ your sweetness
For a lonely night, aye
Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

No more teardrops
Now that I’ve found a love so true
I got a pocketful of rainbows
Got an armful of you

Kiss me extra tender
Hold me extra tight
‘Cause I’m savin’ your sweetness
For a lonely night, aye
Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

No more heartaches
Now that I’ve found a love so true
Got a pocketful of rainbows
And an armful of you

Rainbows…
Rainbows…
