Lyrics

 

I stepped out on the front porch. Water up to my knees. My dog done drowned in the river. Oh won’t you help me please?

 

And that river’s gonna drown us. That river’s gonna take us away. That river’s gonna kill us if we don’t move away.

 

Here comes the sand truck. There’s people to help us today. But it all don’t really matter, because my house done been washed away.


And that river’s gonna drown us.  That river’s gonna take us away. That river’s gonna kill us if we don’t move away.

 

Here comes Bill Clinton and he didn’t do a God darn thing. He just showed his face on the TV, then he jumped in his helicopter and flew away.


And that river’s gonna drown us. That river’s gonna take us away. That river’s gonna kill us if we don’t move away.

 

And that river’s gonna drown us. That river’s gonna take us away. That river’s gonna kill us. It’s the flood of ’93.
