A friend heard this on the radio. Said that it was by Hank Williams the third. (third? i didn't know there WAS a third) Anyway, sounds like fun. Any ideas, leads? Thanks, all.

Can you give any more information? I know a fairly recent country song which has the lines "thunder's just a noise, boys, lightning does the work" etc. Don't know if that's what you want. I can't remember just now who sang it, but I'm sure it was NOT by anybody named Hank.

Hotspur, can you give me that one? I know that this one is contemporary, but since i haven't actually HEARD the song...sigh. Just trying to help a net-less friend out. Thank you so much for your time on this. Truly appreciate it.

This si my first attempt at making a blue clicky, so please don't beat me up if it doesn't work!

The song I'm thinking of is by Chad Brock and the lyrics can (hopefully) be found here:

Bless you, and what a cool site. Anyone printing it out, print page 8 of 8, unless you want all 10 pages. Will check with friend, and see if this is what he was after. Great lyrics, regardless, thank you so much!

Subject: Lyr Add: LIGHTNING DOES THE WORK (Chad Brock)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 09 Dec 10 - 08:15 AM

Of course, I don't know whether this is the song that was originally wanted, but this is the one Hotspur was referring to:


LIGHTNING DOES THE WORK
Chad Brock / Kelly Garrett / John Hadley

You know nothin's gettin' done when talk is all you hear,
Like someone revvin' up a truck never put in gear,
But you don't see a cowboy run his mouth and strut around.
He just takes the bull by the horns and throws him to the ground,
Takin' care of business, not just puttin' on a show.
When it gets down to it, everybody knows?

CHORUS: It ain't the smoke; it's the fire that gets the burnin' done.
If it wasn't for the bullet, nobody'd fear the gun.
It ain't the bark; it ain't the growl; it's the bite that hurts.
Thunder's just a noise, boys. Lightnin' does the work.

You can talk about the farm or you can plow the ground,
Argue with a rusty nail or hammer it on down.
You can stand there in the dark cussin' at the night,
Or you can just reach out your hand and turn on the light.
There ain't no limit in this life to how far you can get,
But if you're goin' all the way, you gotta break a sweat. CHORUS

I've heard thunder talkin' up a storm,
Rattlin' my windows and knockin' on my door.
But I've seen lightnin' blow a cypress tree in half.
The thunder's busy talkin', and lightnin's kickin'. CHORUS

Thunder's just a noise, boys, lightnin' does the work
Ahh yeah
Gonna getcha
Getcha good


[Recorded by Chad Brock on "Chad Brock" (1998) and on "III" (2001).]

Yes ; "Lightening" means "making something lighter" , for example "lightening my load" , whereas the electrical disharge to be found in thunderstorms is " lightning" ; a small, but not insignificant, difference ! Who said spelling is not important ??
