When Sandy Come to Town

(Steve Robinson)
Steve Robinson
Written two weeks after hurricane Sandy devastated the northeast US
She came in when the moon was full
Heart full of fury and an empty soul
Made the seas to rise and the winds to howl
When Sandy came to town

Ain’t no time to hesitate
She’ll have no mercy make no mistake
There’s no redemption and no escape
When Sandy comes to town

Mama I hear an awful sound
The skies are screaming heavens falling down
The waves are crashing all around
Better head for higher ground

Mama grab your child
Husbands grab your wives
Better start running for your lives
When Sandy comes to town

Fire raging out on the sea
God save my children God save me
There’s nothing left but to let it be
When Sandy comes to town

She held dominion till the break of dawn
Never seen such a mighty storm
When the sun came up everything was gone
When Sandy came to town

Papa what is that mournful sound
People crying all over town
Son they’ve seen their lives come crumbling down
Let’s search our hearts for the higher ground

She came in when the moon was full
Raging heart and an empty soul
Made the seas to rise and the winds to howl
When Sandy came to town
When Sandy came to town
When Sandy came to town
