"Smokestack Lightning" as written by and Ed King Todd Cerney....
I was sittin' at home all alone when I heard that telephone ring
And there on the line was a friend of mine sayin' he wasn't doin' a thing
So I'm steppin' out on the town tonight to party where the drinks are free
There's a sweet young thing ready and waitin' on me

[Chorus]
Young and fine, strike you blind
Smokestack lightnin' make you lose your mind
She's got looks that kill can fire at will
Smokestack lightnin' she's all I need

When we got to the place I got me a taste
I knew she'd be good for a game
Dancin' out on the floor she was ready for more
She knew all the boys by their names
I said hey sweet thing let me pull your string
Let me take you home
I woke up in a hour with my money and my memory gone.

[Chorus]

Young and fine strike you blind smokestack lightnin'

[Chorus]

    General CommentI love Skynayd's music but why did they have to give this song the same title as the Howlin' Wolf blues classic with the unforgettable guitar riff. It's a poor relation.
