lyrics

1) Thunder Train

Near Christmas time, my body got cold;
No heat in the house, and my boom box got sold!
I’m tapping my feet to the sound in my head
Walked past a dealer with snaky dreads.
Feel down and dirty in all kinds of ways
Like a broke actor on an empty stage
sure as one plus one is gonna take you to two,
The thunder-train comes roaring through!

Chorus:
You think you’re gonna break my heart
You gonna spit it right out
You gonna look it over
Until I scream and shout
You know I ain’t gonna run away
Because I’m the thunder train!
I’m the thunder train!

All the days, living in the shack
So black and dismal, thought I’d never come back.
Rueben and Steve—and all your friends,
Pulling me down—they got to make amends!
Didn’t want to look bad in front of you guys:
But now I’ll treat ‘em like a mound of flies.
Sure as one plus one is gonna take you to two,
The thunder-train comes roaring through!

Chorus

You burned my bridge, but here I stand
Swiggin’ justice with a lightning hand
I don’t need to look the other way
And I’m still gonna dance today.
I’m the thunder train, down the track:
Thunder train: I won’t ever look back.
Sure as one plus one is gonna take you to two,
The thunder-train comes roaring through!


Chorus
