Storms

Lyrics: Todd Sheaffer
Music: Todd Sheaffer

A Railroad Earth song played with Phil & Friends at the Mardi Gras concert in 2005.

Soft thunder from across the meadow
Rain buckets on the kitchen floor
No letter, and the coffer's empty
But all these storms I know we'll weather
All these storms we'll ride together

I never dreamed that it would be so hard, girl
Never saved up for a rainy day
Never thought that we might howl and shiver
All these storms I know we'll weather
All these storms we'll ride together

Pick up your heart, my love
Pick up your branch and dove
Jamming in the name of the Lord
We've got a hole to mend
We've got a fire to tend
We won't let these troubles grind us
We've got friends and prayers to mind us
We've got seven years behind us

Long rumble coming 'cross the meadow
Rain pouring and the buckets full
Sky cracking and the whole house shaking
All these storms I know we'll weather
All these storms we'll ride together

Pick up your heart, my love
Pick up your branch and dove
Jamming in the name of the Lord
My lady look alive
Our ride will soon arrive

Lift up your eyes my dear
We need some light in here
Jamming till the jamming's through
We've got a hole to mend
We've got a fire to tend
We won't let these troubles find us
We've got prayers on the road behind us
We've got Heaven's horses bridled

Please let it rain

All these storms we'll ride together
Let's get this fire going
