               Dm                          Bb
               Three-thirty in the morning, not a soul in sight
               A                                                         Dm
               The city's lookin' like a ghost town on a moonless summer night
               Dm                                      Bb
               Raindrops on the windshield, there's a storm moving in
               A                                                          Dm
               He's headin' back from somewhere that he never should have been
                                C  A7sus   A7                       Dmstyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
               And the thunder rolls,               and the thunder rollsstyle='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
               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' it's the weather that's kept him out all night
                                 C A7sus A7                  Dm  C  Dm
               And the thunder rolls,         and the thunder rolls
                               Bb    C                      Dm  C  Dm
               And the thunder rolls    and the lightnin' strikes
                                  Bb     C                  A  G  A
               Another love grows cold     on a sleepless night
                                  Bb  C                 Dm  C  Dm
               As the storm blows on      out of control
                            Bb   C                Dm
               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
               But on the wind and rain a strange new perfume blows
            And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes and he knows that she knows
                                 C A7sus A7                  Dm C
               And the thunder rolls,          and the thunder rolls

after that chorus you can do one of three things
1. End the song.
2. Go straight into the 4th (hidden) verse.  
3. make the audience wait so they think the song is over then go into the 4th

If youre going to make the audience wait then just play this about 5 times
Then go back into the picking pattern or strumming whichever way u wanna take it

4th Verse: She runs back down the hallway, and through the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol, kept in the dresser drawer
Says the lady in the mirror 'He wont do this again.'
'Cause tonight will be the last night she'll wonder where hes been Dmx7 (real fast)

Last Chorus: 
                               Bb    C                      Dm  C  Dm
chorus         And the thunder rolls    and the lightnin' strikes
                                  Bb     C                  A  G  A
               Another love grows cold     on a sleepless night
                                  Bb  C                 Dm  C  Dm
               As the storm blows on      out of control
                            Bb   C(let ring)
               Deep in her heart  (3 beat pause)  the thunder rolls
