Thunder And Lightning

Lyrics: Weir, Cochran
Music: Weir, Cochran

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites

Comes the cold rainy night to a steel grey town
Best get out of the wind, it'll blow you down (note 1 )
But that feeling begins to set in as the sun is going down
And it may be stars in your head, but now you feel it in your feet
As the fever takes hold and you gotta hit the street
'Cause you don't know what it is, but there's something out there to be found

So you follow your feet, and let them take you downtown
Let that kamakazi wind kinda show you around
'Cause as it whines and moans, way back there you can also hear another sound
And so you follow that sound and the closer it feels
The more your heart pounds, now your head starts to reel
Turn the corner, kick open the door, and it all comes around

Thunder and lightning, rock and roll
And it's over the edge, babe
And it's out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control

Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control

Studded leather angel howling like a tabby cat in heat
Or maybe just the blues with a steamroller beat
At its best when it's blinding, blasting, blazing
Maybe blue, but man it's bold
All along the city streets and way out on the country roads
Half like a flower, half like a weed it grows
At its razor hot babe when it's laser cold

Thunder and lightning, rock and roll
And it's over the edge, babe
And it's out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control

Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control
Over the edge, out of control
[etc]
