Album: Underneath The Old Red Barn
(Speedy Johnson)

 

Swingin’ chair on the front porch
Homemade ice tea, we’re singing songs
The hurricane is on its way now
But the sun still shines all the day long

 

We need not worry
Tomorrow’s scurries
We got the sunshine
When the storm comes
We’ll have our moonshine

 

Fall-out shelter for that big bomb
I keep my bike down there for a way out
We’re on the front lawn, we’re picking flowers
And we need not care what life’s all about

 

We need not worry
Tomorrow’s scurries
We got the sunshine
When the storm comes
We’ll have our moonshine

 

Oh, when the rain starts, the winds a blowin’
The trees are losing all their branches
River’s risin’, streets are floodin’
And everyone is wondering all about their chance

 

We need not worry
Tomorrow’s scurries
We lost the sunshine
Now  the storm’s here
We got our moonshine

 

I lost a neighbour across the street
His name will not be forgotten
He had no way out, ‘cept a warnin’
Now I raise my final toast to a life that was his

 

We need not worry
Tomorrow’s scurries
We got the sun back
Now the storm’s gone
We’re out of moonshine
