Her brains they rattle and her bones they shake
Whoah, she's an angel from the Innerlake

Thundercrack, baby's back
This time she'll tell me how she really feels
Bring me down to her lightning shack
You can watch my partner reelin'

CHORUS
She moves up, she moves back
Out on the floor there just is no one cleaner
She does this thing she calls the "Jump back Jack"
She's got the heart of a ballerina

She's straight from the Bronx
Hung off the line
She slips, she slides, she slops, she bops, she bumps, she grinds
Even them dance hall hacks
From the west side of the tracks
Move in close to catch her timin'

CHORUS

She ain't no little girl, she ain't got no curls
Her hair ain't brown, and her eyes ain't either
Round and round and round and round

My heart's wood, she's a carpenter
She's an angel in the night, what she does is alright
Dance with me, partner, dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner, 'til the dawn

Thundercrack, baby's back
This time she'll tell me how she really feels
Bring me down to her lightning shack
You can watch my partner reelin'
CHORUS

She ain't no little girl, she ain't got no curls
Her hair ain't brown, and her eyes ain't either
Round and round and round and round

My heart's wood, she's a carpenter
She's an angel in the night, what she does is alright
Dance with me, partner, dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner, all night

    General CommentI loved the version Bruce did on his Devils and Dust tour. Just him, on the piano... BEAUTIFUL!! I hope it comes out on CD soon.

    General Commenti too saw this on the Devils and Dust tour. it was amazing. i have heard versions of this on the radio and in past concerts. i think it talks about a guy who likes a girl, but doesnt know what she thinks about him because of the mixed messages she sends him

    General CommentThis is song is so powerful, it's unbelievable. if you just close your eyes and listen, you feel it...

    For any regular artist, this would have been their masterpiece. Bruce could afford to release it as a rarity.
