Five Feet High and Risin' 

A A
How high's the water, mama? Two feet high and risin'

How high's the water, papa? Two feet high and risin'

We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
D D
that's the only thing we got left that'll float
E E A A
it's already over all the wheat and the oats, Two feet high and risin

C C
How high's the water, mama? Three feet high and risin'

How high's the water, papa? Three feet high and risin'

Well, the hives are gone, I've lost my bees
F F
the chickens are sleepin' in the willow trees
G G C C
cow's in water up past her knees, three feet high and risin'

D D
How high's the water, mama? Four feet high and risin'

How high's the water, papa? Four feet high and risin'

Hey, come look through the window pane,
G G
the bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
A A D D
looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain, 4 feet high and risin'

E E
How high's the water, mama? Five feet high and risin'

How high's the water, papa? Five feet high and risin'

Well the rails are washed out north of town
A A
we gotta head for higher ground B B E E
we can't come back till the water comes down, Five feet high and risin'

Well it's five feet high and risin'
