On a nice spring day
I found a cage in the yard
It was just that way
I found a cage in the yard

I was thinking back about all the times
I was stuck in the basement
With the booze on my mind
I was thinking back about all the times
I was stuck in the basement
With the booze on my mind

High water, high water
High water blues
High water, high water
High water blues

[Incomprehensible]
And the smiles of [Incomprehensible]
All the keys that I made
Never fit in the car

I was reeling and I couldn't be found
Like the hammer hits a nail
I was bent upside down
I was reeling and I couldn't be found
Like the hammer hits a nail
I was bent upside down

High water, high water
High water blues
High water, high water
High water blues

Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin

Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin

Broken bottle's a disgrace
Weeds and old metal wire
[Incomprehensible]
I used an old black tire

All my pictures were locked up in a trunk
When the water came up
It was just my bad luck
All my pictures were locked up in a trunk
When the water came up
It was just my bad luck

High water, high water
High water blues
High water, high water
High water blues

Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin

Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin
