Color a block of texts inside tabbing

I am editing a frame of a presentation in beamer. This frame has 2 parts side by side. The left side is a program by tabbing containing 5 lines:

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{A motivating example}
\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{0.48\textwidth}
\begin{framed}
\resizebox{0.85\textwidth}{!}{%
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\begin{tabbing}
1 \> \> line 1 \\
2 \> \> line 2 \\
3 \> \> line 3 \\
4 \> \> line 4 \\
5 \> \> line 5
\end{tabbing}
\end{minipage}}
\end{framed}
\end{column}
\begin{column}{0.48\textwidth}
...
\end{column}
\end{columns}
\end{frame}


I would like to make Lines 3, 4 and 5 in blue, instead of black. I try to put \color{blue} in front of 3, but it doesn't color things after 3. I try to put \textcolor{blue}{...line 3...line 4...line 5...}, but it gives an error.

Does anyone know if it is possible to color 3 lines together?

each tabbing cell is a separate box, so you can put \color in each cell –  David Carlisle Aug 14 '12 at 10:03
sure, I am wondering if it is possible to color a block, because I have more than 5 lines, and i will change colors quite often... –  SoftTimur Aug 14 '12 at 10:38

Clearly this is gross abuse of syntax, and you didn't hear this from me...

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{color}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabbing}
