Louisiana

What has happened down here is the wind have changed

Clouds rolled in from the north and it started to rain

Rained real hard and it rained for a real long time

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

The river rose all day

The river rose all night

Some people got lost in the flood

Some people got away alright

The river has busted through clear down to Plaquemine

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

Oh, Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

Oh, Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

President Coolidge come down in a railroad train

With a little fat man with a notepad in his hand

The President say, "Little Fat Man, oh, isn't it a shame

What the river has done to this poor farmers' land"

Oh, Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

Oh, Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away
