G                                 F
You know nothing's getting done when talking is all you hear
C                                  G
By someone reving up a truck and never put in gear
You don't see a cowboy run his mouth and strut around
       G                               F                G
Just takes the bull by the horns and throws him to the ground
F                                  G
Taking care of business not just putting on a show
F                         G
When it gets down to it every body knows.

It ain't the smoke it's the fire that gets the burning done
If it wasn't for the bullet no body'd fear the gun
Em                                     C                   G
It ain't the bark, It ain't the growl It's the bite that hurts
G                             D                  G
Thunder's just a noise boys, lightning does the work

G                            F
You can talk about the farm or you can plow the ground
C                                  G
I go where the rusty nail is and hammer it on down
Well you can stand there in the dark cussing at the night
    G                                     F           G 
Or you can just reach out your hand and turn on the light
F                                     G
There ain't no limit in this life to how far you can get
F                                G
But if you're going all the way you've got to break a sweat
Go to chorus
           Em              C           G
Well I've heard thunder talking up a storm
Rattling my windows knocking on my door
Em                                 C             G
Well I've seen lightning blow a cypress tree in half
        D                                                 C  
But thunder's busy taking but lightning's kickin' ___.    Lead, chorus,
G                                  D                G
Thunder's just a noise boys but lightning does the work
Vamp on  G F C G for the rest of this song
Laugh, aw yeah gonna get cha get cha good
