100 Year Flood

This song is by The String Cheese Incident and appears on the album 'Round The Wheel (1998).

The water's rising and the rain's still coming down
There's a river five feet deep running down main street
Grab your children and head for higher ground
'Cause the dam's broke loose
And the flood's gonna wash away this town

In the winter of '96
Too much snow, too much rain would mix
And when that winter day turned warm
Many a town will come to harm

And out on Chasebrook Road that night
That's where some people lost their lives
One hundred feet wide and fifty feet deep Was a hole where the road used to be

Come hell or high water
Starts meaning a whole lot more
From Walton to Schoharie County
No one knew how bad it would be

Some got out and walked away
There's other missing to this day
Scraps of clothing and paper
Float across the water where they once were
