Song Description

The singer tells the story of growing up and working with his father on a fishing boat. He remembers the sights and the smells of being on the river with his father and it helps him deal with the current stress and fast pace of the city and his own mortality. As he deals with his own responsibilities, he remembers his fathers way of dealing with the stress of being a provider.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written on tour in Europe. Although the characters are fictitious, I must have been feeling a little home sick when I wrote this.

Lyrics

THUNDER









i'm a creature of habit and a student of the human race
I live here in a paradise where I've learned to keep an even pace
Trying to making something from nothing at all
sometimes you can pull it off,
& its just Peter paying Paul
Nothin is easy in the cold wind of the coming fall

Dark clouds on the horizon, I can see it when I look to the west
I can tell it's gonna be another rough one
but I'm still gonna do my best
Sometimes I still wonder to myself
'what would my Father do'?
He tried to do his best for the family
and that still works for me and for you

Thunder. Lightning comin down
Thunder. Take cover when you hear that sound
Thunder. Another day without rest
Thunder. and the flash of the comin dawn

My old man was a fisherman and as a kid I thought there was nothing he couldn't do
We lived off the river till the river took him back
he was just another man with a job to do.
I still see him in the wheel house
with the rain crawling across the dirty glass
i can smell the water and the diesel
when I close my eyes
On a boat in the river in the past

I'm living in a room in the city where the people don't give you a friendly glance
if you don't get it right the first time in the city
there's no such thing as a second chance
i'm thinking maybe i've done all that I can do
nothing worth having here lasts
more than a minuet or two
when I close my eyes I'm on a boat in the river in the past.
Thunder. Lightning comin down
Thunder. Take cover when you hear that sound
Thunder. Another day without rest
Thunder. and the flash of the comin dawn
