The Thunder Rolls
Pat Alger/Garth Brooks
Three thirty in the morning
Not a soul in sight
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonlit summer night
Raindrops on the windshield
There's a storm moving in
He's headin' back from somewhere
That he never should have been
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

Every light is burnin'
In a house across town
She's pacin' by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown
Askin' for miracle
Hopin' she's not right
Prayin' it's the weather
That's kept him out all night
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

CHORUS:
The thunder rolls
And the lightnin' strikes
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night
As the storm blows on
Out of control
Deep in her heart
The thunder rolls

She's waitin' by the window
When he pulls into the drive
She rushes out to hold him
Thankful he's alive
But on the wind and rain
A strange new perfume blows
And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes
And he knows that she knows
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

CHORUS

She runs back down the hallway
Through the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol
Kept in the dresser drawer
She tells the lady in the mirror
He won't do this again!
Tonight will be the last time
She'll wonder where he's been
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls
