Your mother was the lightning
I can't believe it's true
Your mother was the lightning
And you're a sky of blue
Oh, now don't you feel blue?

Your father was the driver
Of a shining steel train
The old man did some driving
In blue country rain
Oh, yes, buckets and buckets and buckets of rain

Your sister was a dancer
Up in Barrytown
She spent her nightlife dancing
And drinking cherry wine
Oh, man, what a waste

Your brother was the prophet
He read it in the leaves
They didn't like his magic
So they strung him from a tree
Oh, man, what a pity
He was a friend of mine

Me, I was your lover
You can see my tattoos
Babe, there was no other
Only you
Oh yes, only you

Your mother was the lightning
I can't believe it's true
Your mother was the ocean
And you're a sky of blue
Oh, now don't you feel blue?
Oh, 'cause, yes, I feel blue
