Dry Lightning.
Willie Nelson & Emmylou Harris.
Album: To All The Girls.

Intro: G F C
C                         F
I threw my robe on in the morning,
            C
Watched the ring on the stove turn red,
              G
Stared hypnotized into a cup of coffee,
             F/G       Em       C
Pulled on my boots and made the bed,
                            F
Screen door hanging off its hinges,
     C
Kept banging me awake all night,
          G
As I look out the window,
                  C
The only thing in sight.

   F                       C
Is dry lightning on the horizon line,
     G                           C
Just dry lightning and you on my mind.

C                        F
I chased the heat of her blood,
                C
Like it was the holy grail,
                  G
Descend beautiful spirit,
     G7          C      
Into the evening pale,
    C6         F
Her appaloosas kicking,
F                              C
Kicking in the corral smelling rain,
              G
There's a low thunder rolling,
              C
'Cross the mesquite plain.

                 F                       C
But there's just dry lightning on the horizon line,
          G           G7        G6    C
It's just dry lightning and you on my mind.

Break: F C G7 G G7 C G

G
It drive down Alvarado Street,
C                                  C6 
Where she'd dance to make ends meet,
G                                 C
He'd spend the night over his gin,
                      G               F
He'd watch her, she'd talk to her men.
                           C
The piss yellow sun, comes bringing up the day,
                           G
She said "Ain't nobody can give nobody,
                      C
What they really need anyway."
             F
Well you get so sick of the fighting,
              C
You lose your fear of the end,
                      G     G6
But I can't lose your memory,
                    C
And the sweet smell of your skin.
              F                      C
And it's just dry lightning on the horizon line,
         G                 G6    C
Just dry lightning and you on my mind.
