lyrics

100 Year Flood

The year the rain came down like never before
there was water on the field
there was water on the floor
And now a river flows where our feet usually stand
And it’s well up past my knees
It’s rising

It smoked the fox from its foxhole
it drove my family from our home
And it drifted, oh, it drifted us like worn driftwood
To the banks of the unknown

My daddy said, “take only what your arms can carry”
My mama said, “take only take only what you’d choose to bury:
For them, they took old photographs, gathered letters from before
We left that little house, no need to lock the door

It smoked the fox from its foxhole
It drove my family from our home
And it drifted, oh, it drifted us like worn driftwood
To the banks of the unknown

I know there are days the farmer prays for rain
And the robin finds delight in a pool to cool off in
Water’s pouring in like a thief and it’s ransacking
It’s rising, it’s rising
Oh well it smoked the fox from its foxhole
it drove my family from our home
And it drifted, oh, it drifted us like worn driftwood
To the banks of the unknown
It drifted, oh, it drifted us like worn driftwood
To the banks of the unknown
To the banks of the unknown
