Distant Thunder

(STEVE DAFOE 2004)

( COPYRIGHTED)


Intro - Fmaj7 (2 strums), Cmj7 (2 strums except alternate Cmj7 notes)

Verse A

Am C
And the mustangs rolled on,
G Fmaj7
And their hooves were a' pounding.
Am C
And the dust was so choking,
G Fmaj7
And it reached to the great sky.
Am C
And the cowboy, he came to try,
G Fmaj7
To catch the Black Wonder,
Am C
But he knew, one must die
G Fmaj7
...Apache called her Distant Thunder.

Chorus

Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, in the air,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, best beware.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, in the air,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, quite the mare.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, who will dare,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, best beware.
Fmaj7 ------> Cmaj7 (strum only)









Verse B

Am C
And the cowboy moved in,
G Fmaj7
And his heart was a' pounding.
Am C
And his rope he readied,
G Fmaj7
To catch the Black Wonder
Am C
And the throw was perfect,
G Fmaj7
But the cowboy went down,
Am C
And it left Little Wonder,
G Fmaj7
Still running was Distant Thunder.

Chorus

Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, in the air,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, best beware.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, in the air,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, quite the mare.
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, who will dare,
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7
Distant Thunder, best beware.
Fmaj7 ------> Cmaj7 (instrumental)
