The Thunder Song

Oh Carol-Lynn, the rain is coming in

So come indoors

The August wind smells of cinnamon

It’s warm and dark

———————–

So close up the windows

Throw your clothes on the floor

And lay you down in the kitchen

And weather out the storm

————————————

Heat lightning, the wind is rattling

The cellar door

Old Barley dog, he is howling

The Thunder Song

——————————

So close up the windows

Throw your clothes on the floor

And lay you down in the kitchen

And weather out the storm,

Weather out the storm

———————————————–

Going to hold you so as the murder clouds roll

And keep you close to me

The rain tastes sweet on your sun burnt cheek

As floor boards start to creak

——————————————

The stars arrive, the storm has passed us by

The moon hangs high

The fireflies are singing lullabies

To the fields and sky

———————————–

So throw open the windows

Let the screen door hang ajar

And lay you down in the meadow

And count the blinking stars

Count the blinking stars
