Gordon Lightfoot - Rainbow Trout Lyrics




In the name of love she came
This foolish winsome girl
She was all decked out like a rainbow trout
Swimmin' up stream in the world
And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray, in the name of love"
So I took her by the hand, she took me by the will
She was all dolled up like a blue eyed pup
Looking for something to spill
And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray, in the name of love"

In the name of love she came
This foolish winsome girl
She was all decked out like a rainbow trout
Swimmin' upstream in the world
And she gave one flip of the rainbow tip of her tail
And she swam back down

And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray, in the name of love"

    Any other gordon lightfoot enthusiests know who the girl in the background is?

    It is said to be someone named Jan Stephenson. Not the pro golfer by that name, but a more mysterious woman of mystery...

    one of my very favorites from Mr. Lightfoot, but God knows, there are soooo many. What a catalog this man has created!

    Jill, my fiance in 1974. Where is she now?

    Thank you. Was searching for this. It's the perfect description of the last month of my life. The shortest and most intense relationship I've ever experienced.
