lyrics

just me and God inside the car
beneath the tollway overpass
out in nowhere illinois
sheets of rain on window glass

and when it all passed before me
it looked so good
it was the prophetstown tornado

the newsman on the FM dial
signed off and ran for cover
my car received the final broadcast
as the twister crossed above her

and when it all passed before me
it looked so good
it was the prophetstown tornado

there was pure electric heat
when the lightning struck the land
i wondered 'bout that tall blonde girl
who put the ring upon my hand

and when my lifetime passed before me
it looked so good
it was the prophetstown tornado

88's my favorite number
