Louisiana 1927

What has happened down here is the winds have changed

Clouds roll in from the north and it starts to rain

Rained real hard and rained for a real long time

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline


The river rose all day

The river rose all night

Some people got lost in the flood

Some people got away alright

The river has busted through clear down to Plaquemines

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline


Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

(lembrei-me destes versos do Randy Newman - uns têm a vida fodida sem um tecto. outros ouvem música no conforto do lar. que puta de mundo mais injusto. que puta de lotaria macabra, esta junção entre geografia e metereologia)
