He take-a [E7]thunder from the mountain
He take-a [G]lightnin' from the sky
He bring the [A]strong man to his beggin' knees
He make the [E7]young girl's mama cry
CHORUS:
You got to [E7]hidey-hide
You got to [G]jump and run
You got to [A]hidey-hidey-hide
The [C]old man [D]  is down the [E7]road

Verse 2:
He got the voices speakin' riddles
He got eyes as black as coal
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road

CHORUS

John'sinstrumental..... same pattern as chorus

Verse 3:
He make the river call your lover
He make the barking of the hound
Put a shadow 'cross the window
When the old man comes around

Chorus(last line twice)

Now for some of the riffs used.. i think you can figure out where.
These are not fully correct, I mainly improvise them.
