Waiting For The Hurricane
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
INTRO:  (Guitar solo over)
 
Em  - C -  D -  Em - C -  D - Em - C - D
 
    Em
Standing in the foyer of the Grand Hotel,
    Cmaj7
Suitcase in his hand looking for a bill,
B7            D                                                              B7 
There's a hurricane coming and everyone's trying to get away;
        Em
Time of the season, time of the year,
         Cmaj7
The weather reporter from Miami is clear,
Em         D                                                        Em
"Find a safe place to hide," there's no place here;
                     D
And then the lights go down,
            C
In that Caribbean town,
             Cmaj7
And the fishing boats that go out from the coast,
 D                     Em
Are tied up and dry, yeah yeah yeah,
C                                                        G
Suddenly there's a movement to the telephone,
            B7                Em   D  Cmaj7
But nobody's calling home tonight,
               Em              D          Cmaj7
They've taken out the very last flight,
                     Em                      D            G        C
And they've  closed down the borderline,
 
                  G                          D
'Cos there ain't nowhere to hide,
                         C
Waiting for the hurricane,
              G                          D
There is nowhere here to hide,
                         C
Waiting for the hurricane,
                        G                        D
Oh there is nowhere you can hide,
                         C                                    Em
(Repeat intro and guitar solo)
Waiting for the hurricane, no no no no...
 
 
            Em
Staring out the window of the Grand Hotel,
            Cmaj7
The sea was roaring, I remember well,
                            D                                        Em
And then the honeymoon bride began to cry,
                   D
But as the band played on,
            C
Some old love song,
                Cmaj7
Well he held her hand,
 
Gave her to understand,
                Em
It'll be alright, yeah yeah yeah,
C                                                         G
Suddenly there's a movement to the radio,
        B7                     Em   D  Cmaj7
But nobody's getting home tonight,
                Em             D           Cmaj7
They've taken out the very last flight,
                     Em                     D          G        C
And they've closed down the borderline,
 
'Cos there ain't nowhere to hide,
Waiting for the hurricane,
There is nowhere here to hide,
Waiting for the hurricane,
Oh there is nowhere you can hide,
Waiting for the hurricane,
Oh there is nowhere you can hide,
Waiting for the hurricane,
Oh oh, waiting for the hurricane,
Oh oh, waiting for the hurricane,
No no no no...
 
(repeat intro and guitar solo to fade).
