Garth Brooks The Thunder Rolls Lyrics

Last updated: 12/06/2012 12:18:21 PM

Three thirty in the morning,
Not a soul in sight,
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.

Every light is burnin'
In a house across town.
She's pacin' by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown.
Askin' for a miracle,
Hopin' she's not right,
Prayin' its the weather
That's kept him out all night.
And the thunder rolls.
And the thunder rolls.

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.

She's waitin' by the window
When he pulls into the drive
She rushes out to hold him
Thankful he's alive
Through all 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

horrible video | Reviewer: carolina | 12/6/12

i have seen the video and wanted to know about the lyrics. the woman crying for an idiot who loves someone else and who is not brave enough to say he does not love her anymore. and then she killed the man. why brooks has not written a song talking about a
woman who overcomes her sadness about the end of love and raised her daughter alone bla-bla

Awesome Song | Reviewer: Taylor | 8/7/10

This song is very emotional and very epic and I love it so much. I also love Rodeo, Friends in low places, Shameless, Two of a kind, workin on the full house and The Dance. I could listen to him all day if I wanted!

Goosebumps | Reviewer: Miranda | 6/21/10

I haven't heard this song in years, but it's storming outside and the thunder is booming, and this song popped into my head, i still havent listened to it, but just reading the lyrics gave me goosebumps...

Really Great song | Reviewer: General Cannada | 3/26/10

This song is the greatest that i have heard.... like this song has got me thruogh bad times and kept me out of really bad stuff..... Garth is the greatest performer in my eyes, he is sooo energetic on stage and in all his songs....... but the one thing i havent done is beable to attend a live performance and even tho i have his performances on DVD they would be a hec of alot better live......

I LOVE this song!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/18/10

This i smy favorite song by Garth Brooks (even though I also like The Fever, It's Midnight Cinderella, Victim of the Game, Ireland, The Beaches of Cheyenne, and Friends in Low Places). My class had to present some of our favorite songs, including the lyrics, our interpertation, and a clip if we wanted. Of course, I chose this song, and ended up singing it. When I was finished, the teacher asked how many people had heard this song. One hand went up. Then she played the whole song (except the 3rd verse--even though I sang that one). At least four more hands went up. This song rocks, and Garth Brooks is my favorite singer!

This isn't the full song | Reviewer: Christine | 3/9/10

This is just the "radio" version. The song has a 3rd verse to it:

She runs back down the hallway
To the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol
Kept in the dresser drawer
Tells the lady in the mirror
He won't do this again
Cause tonight will be the last time
She'll wonder where he's been

The thunder rolls, and the lightning strikes
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night
As the storm rolls on, out of control
Deep in her heart.....

The Thunder Rolls

Awesome | Reviewer: Kimberley | 8/10/09

I first heard this song years ago, and just recently got Garth's Ultimiate Hits albums. I LOVE this song and I can't stop listening to it. His voice is amazing and so soothing. Gotta love him and this song.

good song | Reviewer: Windsaw | 2/1/09

I just want to say that I worked at Bestbuy Magnolia Home theater (magnolia is basically Bestbuy + its SUPER high end stuff) and this song was one of the BEST demos I used. I am not a country fan, more of the the Rock, or hip hop type, as were most of the customers I helped. Even so every person I played this song for LOVED the song....and the speakers I played it on! lol. Moral of the story is this song is AWESOME I love it, and not even a fan of the genre...and that it sounds EVEN better on a good set of speakers.

SERIOUSLY, Makes a huge Difference! I got laid of due to the fuckin economy so I dont even work there anymore but anyone able to go to a MAGNOLIA Bestbuy store, buy some quality speakers and then play this song. you wont be disappoited

Only country song | Reviewer: Peter | 8/29/08

I don't listen to country music. My taste is more dance, trance, techo, jungle, etc., however, I must say, this is one of my fav songs. I LOVE IT!!! Funny thing, I don't even know what Garth Brooks looks like.. hee hee... AWESOME SONG.

AWSOME SONGS | Reviewer: rayanne | 11/9/07

The Thunder Rolls & Garth Rocks. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/07

The Thunder Rolls is an excellent arrangment both Insturmental & lyrical. The storm recording in itself is nice too & helps to easily bring the song into your ears. Long reveiw made short, its a timeless classic. Thanks Garth...
