Tornado

This song is by Greg Brown and Dick Pinney and appears on the Live album Hacklebarney (1974).

Snaky clouds are boiling in the rambling west
Fist beats through my ribcage
Gonna tear apart my chest
I sure hope the tornado don't come
Shadows leap, can't get away
From the moving beast
If I had me a fast car I would
Gun it for the east
I sure hope the tornado don't come

I'd love to (love to) run out free
Into the raging storm
I'd love to love some women
Who wave those can-ya-take-it arms
I sure hope the tornado don't come
They say it takes you in a whirl
And you don't choose where to land
Creatures of the dreams you bury
Grab you by the hand
Oh tornado
I ain't ready to face 14 directions
Oh tornado
No!
But the trees begin to tremble
The grass begins to sing
The radio fella's yelling
He's not selling anything
I sure hope that tornado don't come
The mothers grab their children
The dogs all turn around
The ocean is in the sky
Some fool has turned it unside down
I sure hope that tornado don't come
