FIVE FEET HIGH AND RISING


How high is the water momma? Two feet high and rising
How high is the water, poppa? Two feet high and rising
We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
Thatís the only thing we got left that will float
Itís already over all the wheat and oats
Two feet high and rising

How high is the water, momma? Three feet high and rising
How high is the water, poppa? Three feet high and rising
Well, the hives are gone, I lost my bees
Chickens are sleeping in the willow trees
Cows in water up past their knees
Three feet high and rising

How highís the water, momma? Four feet high and rising
How highís the water, poppa? Four feet high and rising
Hey, come look through the window pane
The bus is coming, gonna take us to the train
Looks like weíll be blessed with a little more rain
Four feet high and rising

How high is the water momma? Five feet high and rising
How high is the water poppa? Five feet high and rising
Well, the rails are washed out in all the town
We gotta hit for higher ground
Canít come back until the water goes down
Five feet high and rising

Well, itís five feet high and rising
