Johnny Thunder lives on water, feeds on lightning
Johnny Thunder don't need no one, don't want money
And all the people of the town, they can't get through to Johnny

They will never, ever break him down
Johnny Thunder speaks for no one, goes on fighting
And sweet Helena in bed, prays for Johnny

Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Thunder and lightning

Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Thunder and lightning

Though everybody tried their best,
Old Johnny vowed that he would never
Ever end up like the rest

Johnny Thunder rides the highway
Moves like lightning but sweet Helena just says
"God bless Johnny"

Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Thunder and lightning

Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Ba, ba-ba, ba, ba-ba, ba
Thunder and lightning
