Lyrics:

Well I was just a little boy or should I say a little man
There were three men on the count was three and two, there was silence in the stands.
Then the pitcher threw me the weight of the world and for one moment time stood still.
Then with the crack of my bat I was the hero of Thunder Hill.

Then the place went wild, there was laughter and cheers as the team carried me around.
Bu from way up there I searched everywhere and you were nowhere to be found.
Just then the weight of the world came crashin down and for one moment time stood still.
And on that glory day I Lost my way, I was alone at Thunder Hill.

And I missed you dad, yea I missed you dad.
Somehow the best days of my life always turned out sad.
You were always in my dreams, you were always on my mind
But you were always somewhere else, on the road to the big time. (repeat intro)

I bought my first guitar, I was gonna be a start when I was just a teen
I played it till my fingers bled tryin to make you proud of me
Then my day finally came and I was playin on stage and for one moment time stood still
Then with the strum of my strings I was the hero of Thunder Hill

Well I knew this time you'd be there for me cause the music sings to you.
But from way up there I searched everywhere and there was no sign of you.
Amidst the sound of applause I was a little boy lost and for one moment time stood still
Then on that glory day I swore I'd make you pay for leavin me at thunder Hill.

And I hated you Dad, yea I hated you Dad
And now the best days of my life only made me mad
Someday you'll see my name in lights and it'll serve you right.
Cause I'm on my on now, on the road to the big time.

I climbed the mountains high I searched the valleys low till I had nothing left to give.
Then on my way back home when all my hope was gone, I found the courage to forgive.
Then I released the weight of the world and for one moment time stood still.
And on that glory day I found my way, I found my hero on Thunder Hill.

And I know that he'll always be there for me through my triumphs and my pain.
I only wish you new he'd be your father too if you'd only trust again.
Just forgive and release the weight of the world and for one moment let time stand still.
And on that glory day I pray you'll find your way, he waits for you at Thunder Hill.

And I forgive you dad, yea I forgive you dad.
After all I know that you were just giving me the best you had.
You were out searching just Like I, to get what you could never find.
I guess we both just lost our way on the road to the big time.
