Well, the hives are gone I've lost my bees 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 Til the water goes down Five feet high and rising Well, it's five feet high And rising
