Words and Music by Tom Dalton
This rock song describes the frustration and challenge for those of us who live in the southern states and are affected by hurricanes each year.
When the Hurricane Comes

I can feel the depression moving in
I feel it in my neck and in my head
Can’t seem to get a breath of air
One more hurricane I cannot bear

Every year they come and every year they go
And every time I say “I should have known”
When the seasons gone and the damage done
What you gonna do when the hurricane comes?
When the hurricane comes
When the hurricane comes

I wish that I could blame it on someone
I wish that there was somewhere I could run
But I can’t stand to leave my old home town
Like a captain on his ship going down


Maybe I should move to the Midwest
But they got tornados there - so why invest?
It’s much too cold up north – makes my body ache
And California’s great if you like earthquakes
