Garth Brooks – The Thunder Rolls lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
Three thirty in the morning
Not a soul insight
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless 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 ...

[Verse 2]
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

[Verse 3]
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]
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

[Outro]

    "The Thunder Rolls" tells the story of a wife waiting up late into the night for her husband. As he comes into the house, she smells another woman's perfume on him. All of this is set against the backdrop of a storm, representing the tribulation of the couple's marriage.
    The song originally contained a third verse in which the woman runs to her dresser drawer to get a pistol, telling herself that she'll never again wonder where he is. However, producer Allen Reynolds felt it worked well with just two verses and the third verse never appeared on the studio version, although Brooks does sing it at concerts as is evidenced in the version included on Double Live. The video to the single (which does not include the third verse) does have a scene where the woman kills her husband, played by Brooks. It should be noted that the wife in the video has a black eye. The video also contains scenes suggesting that domestic violence has played a large part in their lives, thus giving the wife more motive than the song suggests. The video won Music Video of the Year at the 1991 cma Awards.
