Lyrics:

Don't take my home, it's all I have, my family's gone, I'm all alone
Please let me stay, oh God I pray, please let me stay.

Cause the day that levee broke my whole world fell in
I've lived here forty years, raised my family shed my skin
Don't make me go, don't take the one thing I have left just let me stay
Till the storm comes in again

Don't take my home, it's all I have, my family's gone, I'm all alone
Please let me stay, oh God I pray, please let me stay.

That big man came here today, he's gonna take my home away
cause one more storm like that and the com'py will have to pay
Where will I go, I've gone through all that I can bear my life is gone
They'll have to drag me out of here

Don't take my home, it's all I have, my family's gone, I'm all alone
Please let me stay, oh God I pray, please let me stay.
Please let me stay...
