Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter
In his Road Journal for 16 June 1999, Robert Hunter wrote
"... developing half a dozen new songs (Serafina Magdalena, Ebenezer, Bolt from the Blue, Sack of Babylon, Back to the Somme, St. Agnes' Day) and working them up for performance"."Bolt From The Blue" never seems to have been performed by Hunter - though I wonder if it has links to Into The Blue which debuted a few years later and includes the line"The way it comes at you like a bolt from the blue".
