High Water Flood Blues

This song is by Carl Martin and appears on the split compilation album Carolina Blues (1998) by Tennessee Chocolate Drops, Carl Martin and Brownie McGhee.

Well, it rained, it rained, and the rivers began to rise
Banks began to overflow thousands lost their lives
So what a terrible flowing, flowing on and on
There's thousands of people, have done lost their happy homes

Well, the whistles began blowing, and the bells began to ring
People running and screaming, but they couldn't do a thing
'Cause the water kept on flowing, flowing on and on
There's thousand of people, have done lost their happy homes

Well, the downtown floods out, the people, in an awful fix
Something like that flood started in Pittsburgh, in 1936
The water kept on flowing, flowing on and on
There's thousands of people, have done lost their happy homes

Well, high water's here, high water's everywhere
High water's here, high water's everywhere
I believe if you go to China, you'd find high water there
