Thunderheads
Thank Heavens For Dale Evans (1990)

The kids are playin' in the sand
And my hair is nearly dry
Supper's on the table and there's promise in the sky
And you're out there on your ginger mare,
You're not praying so I do
Not so much a prayer for rain
As a desperate prayer for you

Thunderheads blow across the mesa
Like a heartless lover's lie
Thunderheads across the mountain
As another dream goes by
They glow like clouds from heaven
But the devil has to have his way
Thunderheads'll bring you to your knees
And make you pray for a rainy day

I know you can't admit it
That you've lost and nature's won
That thunderheads will blow away across the dying sun
So don't try to tell me darling
How your heart's lost to the land
I don't need your explanations
I just want to hold your hand

Thunderheads blow across the mesa
Like a heartless lover's lie
Thunderheads across the mountain
As another dream goes by
They glow like clouds from heaven
But the devil has to have his way
Thunderheads'll bring you to your knees
And make you pray for a rainy day

And when it rains the dust will set
We'll lie upon the sheets
We'll listen to the music on the roof and fall asleep
And we'll laugh again and love
Just like the years when we had rain
Then you'll feel the need to let me
Near your heart - near your heart again

Thunderheads blow across the mesa
Like a heartless lover's lie
Thunderheads across the mountain
As another dream goes by
They glow like clouds from heaven
But the devil has to have his way
Thunderheads'll bring you to your knees
And make you pray for a rainy day

Thunderheads blow across the mesa
Like a heartless lover's lie
Thunderheads across the mountain
As another dream goes by
They glow like clouds from heaven
But the devil has to have his way
Thunderheads'll bring you to your knees
And make you pray for a rainy day
