Thunder

Lyrics: Robert Hunter?
Music: Scott Murawski

One of the new songs played by Bill Kreutzmann, Oteil Burbridge and Scott Murawski, I think with lyrics by Robert Hunter.

There is thunder in the morning
Thunder through the night
Thunder, thunder, thunder
In the failing of the light
In the failing of the light

There is thunder at the border
And thunder on the plains
Thunder, thunder, from the mountains
Gotta hitch a rain
Gotta hitch a rain

Thunder, thunder, thunder
My God but it's slow down
It's like a thousand cannons
Firing right above the crowd
Right above the crowd

There is thunder on the battlefield
Thunder in the ranks
Thunder, thunder, in the whiskey jar
As we race to give our thanks
As we race to give our thanks

There is thunder in the gazes
Of a soft and [luminous] eyes
Thunder, thunder in the phrases
Of politics and lies
Politics and lies

Thunder, thunder, thunder
My God but it's slow down
It's like ten thousand cannons
Firing right into the crowd
Right into the crowd

There is thunder, in the marketplace
Where goods are bought and sold
Thunder, thunder, in the mining place
And in the hills of gold
And in the hills of gold

There is thunder in the God of man
Thunder in the God of dark
Thunder, thunder, in the hall of memories
That breaks just like a charm
That breaks just like a charm

Thunder, thunder, thunder
My God but then slow down
It's like a million cannons
Shooting right into the crowd
Right into the crowd
Right into the crowd
Right into the ground
