Bob Dylan - Thunder On The Mountain

Thunder on the mountain
and there's fires on the moon
A ruckus in the alley and the
sun will be here soon
Today's the day gonna
grab my trombone and blow
Well there's hot stuff here
and it's everywhere I go
I was thinkin' 'bout Alicia
Keys couldn't keep from
crying
When she was born in
Hell's Kitchen
I was living down the line
I'm wondering where
in the world
Alicia Keys could be
I been looking for her even
clear through Tennessee
Feel like my soul is
beginning to expand
Look into my heart and
you will sort of understand
You brought me here
now you're trying to run me
away
The writing on the wall
come read it
come see what it say

Thunder on the mountain
rollin' like a drum
Gonna sleep over there
that's where the music
coming from
I don't need any guide
I already know the way
Remember this
I'm your servant both
night and day
The pistols are poppin'
and the power is down
I'd like to try somethin'
but I'm so far from town
The sun keeps shinin'
and the North Wind keeps
picking up speed
Gonna forget about myself
for a while
gonna go out and see
what others need

I've been sittin'
down studyin'
the art of love
I think it will fit me
like a glove
I want some real good woman
to do just what I say
Everybody got to wonder
what's the matter with this
cruel world today

Thunder on the mountain
rolling to the ground
Gonna get up in the morning
walk the hard road down
Some sweet day
I'll stand beside my king
I wouldn't betray your love
or any other thing
Gonna raise me an army
some tough sons of bitches
I'll recruit my army
from the orphanages
I been to St Herman's
church said
my religious vows
I've sucked the milk out of a
thousand cows
I got the porkchops
she got the pie
She ain't no angel
and neither am I
Shame on your greed
shame on your wicked schemes
I'll say this
I don't give a damn about
your dreams

Thunder on the mountain
heavy as can be
Mean old twister bearing
down on me
All the ladies in Washington
scrambling to get out of town
Looks like something bad
gonna happen better roll
your airplane down
Everybody going and
I want to go too
Don't wanna take a
chance with somebody new
I did all I could
I did it right there and
then
I've already confessed
no need to confess again
Gonna make a lot of money
gonna go up north
I'll plant and I'll harvest
what the earth brings forth
The hammer's on the table
the pitchfork's on the shelf
For the love of God
you ought to take pity
on yourself

Thunder on the mountain
and there's fires on the moon
A ruckus in the alley and the
sun will be here soon
Today's the day gonna
grab my trombone and blow
Well there's hot stuff here
and it's everywhere I go
