Floatin' in the lower nine
Waitin' for a boat to throw me a line
See my Stella smile
Sittin' on a roof, eatin' alligator pie

First day the water rise
Second day the sun is high
Third day Stella cries
'Cause nighttime's dark as a dead man's eyes

Yeah, Lord, Lord, say
Yeah, tell me when help is gonna come
Oh, yeah, yeah
Yeah, Stella said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"

Storm went right on by
Thanked the Lord everybody's alright
Don't mean to throw off a second line
But the devil broke the levee and left us here to die

Stella said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
"Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
"Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"

Like a dance hall to get y'all down
Like a dance hall to get y'all down
Like a dance hall to get y'all down
Oh, yeah

All the things we know and everything we hope for
All the things we wanted, everything that was sure
Now there is a scar where the old men used to be
The corner store and market where Stella used to sing to me
Grace is all I'm asking, when will Grace return?
Grace is all I'm asking

Remember how it feels
Lazy days in the summertime
Then my Stella smiled
Stella said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"

Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh
Stella said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
Said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
"Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
Tell me, Lord, when help is gonna come
She said, "Daddy, when you gonna put me in a song?"
