They we say weve gotta leave but theres no way to go
And this aint the first time weve weathered out a storm
And I aint got nothing but at least I know its mine
And Ill be goddamned if Im leaving here before the day I die

So let the rain sting my neck
Let the mighty Mississippi take this god forsaken town
Let the storm and all the fury come and carry me away
Take me to that place somewhere on higher ground

The voices on the radio were cracking off and on
The court is underwater and the levee's all but gone
Theres children in the treetops and soldiers in the sky
Its too late now to run Id never make it out alive

So let the rain sting my neck
Let the mighty Mississippi take this god forsaken town
Let the storm and all the fury come and carry me away
Take me to that place somewhere on higher ground

Everyone sit tight help is on the way
I dont think Jr. is going to last another day
We got a sawed off and a red hot forty-four
So all you looters best come heavy
When youre knocking on my door

So let the rain sting my neck
Let the mighty Mississippi take this god forsaken town
Let the storm and all the fury come and carry me away
Take me to that place somewhere on higher ground

We all know this Crescent City just wont be the same again
And Ill still be standin when the saints go marching in

Xs on the windows say theres no one left inside
If you count the painted numbers youll know just how many died
And Im one in half a million so at least Im not alone
The hurricane is over but the storm keeps raging on

Let the rain sting my neck
Let the mighty Mississippi take this god forsaken town
Let the storm and all the fury come and carry me away
Take me to that place somewhere on higher ground
Take me to that place somewhere on higher ground
