"Smokestack Lightning" as written by and Chester Burnett....
Oh, yeah, smoke stack lightning
Hum, hum, shine down on me babe
Well, I know since you've been gone
Oh I ain't no piece in my home

Oh babe, I gotta go catch the next train smokin'
Bring my bags and go
Oh my baby need you by my side
Give me loving, keep me satisfied
Hear me crying, baby, oh, oh, oh, oh all right

Hear me crying, ough, ough,
Ough, ough, here my crying baby, ah ah ah ah
Hear me me crying now, hey hey hey
Smoke stack lightning, since you've been gone,
I ain't had no peace, no peace in my home
You don't tell me no crying, don't tell me know more
Come on back home baby hear me crying baby
Ough, Lord I know, ough, Lord I know, yeah
Oh, Lord, I know oh
Help me somebody
Smoke stack lightning,
Hear me crying baby,
Hear me crying baby,
Hear me crying baby,
Hear me crying baby,
Hey, all right, all right
Smoke stack lightning
Baby don't you know

    General CommentI think this is their best cover, and one of their best pieces of music.
    I really like Howling Wolf's version, being the original too, but I think they surpassed him with this one.
    I also believe in this song you can really see where the foundations of The Doors' music lie.
