I threw my robe on in the morningWatched the ring on the stove turn redStared hypnotized into a cup of coffeePulled on my boots and made the bedScreen door hangin' off its hingesKept bangin' me awake all nightAs I look out the windowThe only thing in sight
Is dry lightning on the horizon lineJust dry lightning and you on my mind.
I chased the heat of her bloodLike it was the holy grailDescend beautiful spiritInto the evening paleHer appaloosa's kickin'Kickin' in the corral smelling rainThere's a low thunder rolling'Cross the mesquite plain
But there's just dry lightning on the horizon lineIt's just dry lightning and you on my mind
I'd drive down to Alvarado StreetWhere she'd dance to make ends meetI'd spend the night over my ginAs she'd talk to her men
The piss yellow sunComes bringin' up the dayShe said "Ain't nobody can give nobodyWhat they really need anyway."
Well you get so sick of the fightin'You lose your fear of the endBut I can't lose your memoryAnd the sweet smell of your skin
And it's just dry lightning on the horizon lineJust dry lightning and you on my mind
