Thunder And Lightning - Tony Douglas

Thunder And Lightning

Tony Douglas

(Jack Rhodes, D RECORDS 1121, 1960)

Went to bed last night, but I just couldn't sleep
I ended up counting them same old sheep
Got a letter saying, daddy don't stay too long
So I'm packing in the morning and I'm moving on

Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm with her once again
Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm home again

Got a letter from my baby, it's what changed my plans
Saying daddy your woman just gotta have her man
What good is your treasure of silver and gold
You stayed away too long and let my love go cold

Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm with her once again
Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm home again

She said, I get lonesome at the set of sun
My heart starts to aching and my feet won't run
You know I warned you daddy when you left that day
That it just ain't safe to leave your woman this way

Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm with her once again
Thunder, lightning, storm or rain, hai, hain
Ain't a thing gonna stop me till I'm home again
I wanna go home, I gotta go home, home again
