BlackHawk - Big Guitar Lyrics

Hey now boys, take a lookit right here...
Only one comes 'round every million years.
She's a midnight rider on a shooting star,
Makes the whole world ring like a big guitar.

Well she flagged me down with the devil's way...
It was somewhere down that lost highway...
She's a lifeboat on a raging sea,
She's a high note on the harmony...

She takes away my pain and sorrow...
Loves me like there's no tomorrow, this.
I can't resist...
In my life I realize,
I have never known a sweeter kiss...
Funny what I missed...

Got a piece of heaven right here on earth...
And believe me I know what it's worth.
She's an island dream on a rainy day...
She's a desperado's hideaway...

Hey now boys, take a lookit right here...
Only one comes 'round every million years.
She's a midnight on a shooting star...
Makes the whole world ring...
Big guitar.

    I think kids in the video are portrayed by the names of the band's four sons at the time: Henry Paul IV, David & Trey Robbins and Wes Stephenson.
