Five Feet High. . . and Risin'


How high's the water Mamma? Two feet high and risin'
How high's the water Pappa? She said it's two feet high and
risin'
Well we can make it to the road in a home made boat
'Cause that's the only thing we got left that'll float
It's already over all the wheat and oats
Two feet high and risin'

How high's the water Mamma? Three feet high and risin'
How high's the water Pappa? She said it's three feet high and
risin'
Well our hives are gone, I lost my bees
Chickens are sleepin' in the willow tree
Cows are in water up past their knees
Three feet high and risin'

How high's the water Mamma? Four feet high and risin'
How high's the water Pappa? She said it's four feet high and
risin'
Hey, come look through the window pane
The bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
Looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain
Four feet high and risin'

How high's the water Mamma? Five feet high and risin'
How high's the water Pappa? She said it's five feet high and
risin'
Well the rails are washed out north of town
We gotta head for higher ground
We cain't come back 'till the water goes down
Five feet high and risin'
Well it's five feet high and risin'
