Five Feet High And Rising

How high's the water, mama?
Two feet high and rising
How high's the water, papa?
She said it's two feet high and rising

We can make it to the road
In a homemade boat
That's the only thing
We got left that'll float
It's already over
All the wheat and the oats
Two feet high and rising

How high's the water, mama?
Three feet high and rising
How high's the water, papa?
Shee said it's three feet high and rising

Well, the hives are gone
I've lost my bees
The chickens are sleeping
In the willow trees
Cow's in water up past her knees
Three feet high and rising

How high's the water, mama?
Four feet high and rising
How high's the water, papa?
She said it's four feet high and rising

Hey, come look through the window pane
The bus is coming
Gonna take us to the train
Looks like we'll be blessed
With a little more rain
Four feet high and rising

How high's the water, mama?
Five feet high and rising
How high's the water, papa?
She said it's five feet high and rising

Well, the rails are washed out north of town
We gotta head for higher ground
We can't come back
Till the water comes down
Five feet high and rising
Well, it's five feet high and rising
