'Neath a crown of mongrel trees I pulled that bothersome thread Got down on my knees Grabbed my pen and bowed my head Tried to summon all that my heart finds true And send it in my letter to you
Things I found out through hard times and good I wrote 'em all out in ink and blood Dug deep in my soul and signed my name true And sent it in my letter to you
In my letter to you I took all my fears and doubts In my letter to you All the hard things I found out In my letter to you All that I've found true And I sent it in my letter to you
I took all the sunshine and rain All my happiness and all my pain The dark evening stars And the morning sky of blue And I sent it in my letter to you And I sent it in my letter to you
In my letter to you I took all my fears and doubts In my letter to you All the hard things that I found out In my letter to you All that I found true And I sent it in my letter to you I sent it in my letter to you

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
It was never a big hit, but "She's A Rainbow" became one of the most popular Rolling Stones songs in the digital age when it started showing up in commercials (iMac, Photoshop), and TV shows (American Horror Story: Coven, Ted Lasso).
