McKinley Mitchell - "The End of the Rainbow" (Lyric Video)

In a throwback mood.  I've always loved this McKinley Mitchell song.  
It's kind of sad and depressing but oh so beautiful!  
I went running to the end of the rainbow
Looking for treasures they said I could find
I found nothing but heartaches and trouble
And I'm about to lose my mind
ON the way, the load got heavy
And the burdens got hard to bear
None of my friends was there to help me
Left me standing in the middle of nowhere
With a heart full of pain I was lost
So blind I couldn't see a thing
I couldn't even remember my name

How sad is that??  I wonder what the writer was going through when he penned these lyrics.  It had to be devastating.
I don't own the rights to this song.
