I come up from the bottom and the water's all around (repeat)
The police on the corner won't allow nobody 'round

Well the water was rising as the rain poured from the sky (repeat)
and I stood and I watched babe, as my life went washing by

Town I know, it got washed away (repeat)
I got one little sack mamma and I got nowhere I can stay

From the time I come up, till the time I was fully grown(repeat)
Don't you know Navasote's been my home

Give me some consolation, let me stay here by your fire(repeat)
Well you a kind little woman, and I'm too square to lie
