Searchin For A Rainbow-tab  Marshall Tucker Band

[1975]Written by Toy Caldwell
Tabbed by Ray Scheidler
Note: I've heard different ways to play a particular
chord on this song.Some have said that a D/F#
is the proper chord in the progression but I
hear a Bm.I'll use D/F# and let the reader
decide if they want to susbstitute a Bm instead.
Sometimes I think an Em substitutes for a Cmaj7
too but that's just my opinion.
