(N.C)                      A
I went to work for her that summer
                              F#m
A teenage kid so far from home
                        D
She was a lonely widowed woman
                           E     Esus
Hellbent to make it on her own
                              A        Asus
We were a thousand miles from nowhere
                               F#m
Wheat fields as far as I could see
                                D      Dsus
Both needin' somethin' from eachother
E                               A      Asus A
Not knowing yet what that might be

(Dist. Electric Guitar)

verse II
                         A
'Till she came to me one evening
                        F#m
Hot cup of coffee and a smile
                      D
In a dress that I was certain
                           E
She hadn't worn in quite a while
                                 A
There was a difference in her laughter
                               F#m
There was a softness in her eyes
                          D
And on the air there was a hunger
E                     A
Even a boy could recognize

chorus
                           E      D
She had a need to feel the thunder
                                A
To chase the lightning from the skies
                             D
To watch a storm in all it's wonder
                     E
Ragin' in her lovers eyes
                            F#m     E   D
She had to ride the heat of passion
                     A
Like a comet burnin' bright
                            D
Rushing head-long in the wind
                           E
Out where only dreams have been
                           A      D    A
Burnin' both ends of the night


verse III

The summer wind was all around us
Nothin' between us but the night
And when I told her that I never
She softly whispered, "That's alright"
And then I watched her hands of leather

verse IV

I often think about that summer
The sweat the moonlight and the lace
                                     Har.

And I've rarely held another
When I havn't seen her face
Every time I pass a wheatfield

Although I know it isn't real

Her hungry arms again
