Track Name: The Flood
I was five years old
Just me and my mother
In a house on a hill on the riverside
Winter's cold morning
Much like any other
Water came up the hill from the riverside

The flood came up
The flood came up from the riverside

Screaming in my house
Woke up everybody
As I looked out the window in the morning light
Sunday, 6 A.M.
Mama came a-running
Water flooded the hill in the dark of night

The flood came up
The flood came up
The flood came up to my house at night

I got my clothes on
Mama called grandmother
She's downstairs in the house on the riverside
Who will help her now?
She's got one leg only
She can't swim up the hill to save her life

The flood came up
The flood came up
The flood came up from the riverside

All the boats came up
Got me, mom, grandmother
Took us to the top of the hill on the riverside
Gather up your own
Gather, sisters, brothers
Bless your soul you came out of the flood alive

The flood came up
The flood came up
The flood came up
The flood came up, tried to take my life
