Eric Bibb – Flood Water Lyrics


Flood Water Lyrics

Flood water spreadin’ all arround (2x)
People everywhere tryin’ to make higher ground

Many met their Maker in a watery grave (2x)
If your neighbour had a boat, well ya mighta been saved
Mighta been saved

Bibles floatin’ in the water, had to leave it all behind
Sister had a vision, church paid her no mind
Paid her no mind

People straddlin’ their rooftops –

Water reachin’ to their kness (2x)
Heard the preacher holler, “Lord, Lord, Lord
Have Mercy, if You please!”

Don’t you know, it rained, Noah, where were you” (2x)
Cows couldn’t swim, drownin’ two by two

Flood water far as my eyes could see (2x)
Nineteen hundred, twenty-seven never leave my memory
Never leave my memory
