I said "John, you see those clouds?
This ain't another rainy day."
He asked "How?"
I said "The skies are just a little too gray."

There was a red sky this morning,
We better take some warning.
So I said, "Eye of the Hurricane,
Don't think I'll be back again
So say goodbye to Mama and Daddy
cause it looks like this could be the end.

I said "Ike, my old friend,
I didn't know this would be the end."
The wind just blew..
"I know", I said. "I don't expect no mercy from you."

I can't hang on much longer,
The currents getting stronger..
So I said "Eye of the Hurricane,
Knew I wouldn't be back again."

Most never see
Ike will always be free
So I said "Take care Mama and Daddy,
Someday I know I'll see you again."

I wrote this about Hurricane Ike, because we had a home (boat) in Galveston and lost it.
