Hans Theessink's song "Shelter from the Storm," with Terry Evans



Here are the two singers we heard in class, performing Hans Theessink's song "Shelter from the Storm" live in concert. Terry Evans, on the left, is from Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA; Hans Theessink is from the Netherlands, and now lives in Austria.

The version of the song we heard in class is here on the right. On this 2012 album the famous guitarist Ry Cooder also performed on the track, as Hans Theessink explains in introducing the song on the video above.

"Shelter from the Storm" (transcription) by Hans Theessink.

When cold raging winds
bring you pain and misery
you're caught in a tempest baby
like a ship that's lost at sea
when the light from the lighthouse
no longer leads you on
let me be your harbor baby
give you shelter from the storm

[chorus:] shelter from the storm
shelter from the storm
let me be your harbor baby
give you shelter from the storm

let me be a shoulder for you to lean on
give you comfort when things go wrong
when your sail is tattered and torn
you're out there all alone
let me be your harbor baby
give you shelter from the storm

when cold raging winds
bring you pain and misery
you're caught in a tempest baby
like a ship out on the sea
when the light from the lighthouse
no longer leads you on
let me be your harbor baby
give you shelter from the storm

[chorus] [chorus]
