Lightning

It was a long stretch of highway
He'd been drivin' day and night
With the pedal to the floor
Forty days since he'd seen her
Pulls into the driveway then he walks up to the door
That's when the lightnin' strikes him down

She was standin' in the doorway with a sad, sad, look
In her pretty green eyes
Yeah, he thought he'd lost his mind
When he saw her standin' there
With that other guy
Oh yeah, the lightnin' strikes him down

[Chorus]
He had a bottle in his pocket
That he hadn't cracked yet
It was gone in no time
That's a pretty safe bet
One strike, two strikes, three strikes, four
If there's lightnin' in that bottle
It won't strike no more

When the news came on the TV
They said they'd found a body
They weren't sure who it could be
As she watched it with her lover
She stared in total shock and cried "it's all because of me!"
That's when the lightnin' strikes her down

[Chorus]
She had a bottle in her cupboard
That she hadn't cracked yet
It was gone in no time
That's a pretty safe bet
One strike, two strikes, three strikes, four
If there's lightnin' in that bottle
It won't strike no more

[Bridge]
Yeah, she said she loved him truly, it was on the telephone
And that was just the other day
Now she's standin' on a rock where his body had washed up
At the edge of the bay...

[Chorus]
She had a bottle in her pocket
That she hadn't cracked yet
It was gone in no time
That's a pretty safe bet
One strike, two strikes, three strikes, four
If there's lightnin' in that bottle
It won't strike no more
One strike, two strikes, three strikes, four
If there's lightnin' in that bottle
It won't strike no more
If there's lightnin' in that bottle
It won't strike no more
