    My mama always taught me that good things come from
    adversity if we put our faith in the Lord.
    We couldn't see much good in the flood waters when
    they
    were causing us to have to leave home,
    But when the water went down, we found that it had
    washed a load of rich black bottom dirt across our
    land. The following year we had the best cotton crop
    we'd ever had.

    I remember hearing:

    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
    That's the only thing we got left that'll float
    It's already over all the wheat and the oats,
    Two feet high and risin'

    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
    The chickens are sleepin'
    In the willow trees
    Cow's in water up past her knees,
    Three feet high and risin'

    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,
    The bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
    Looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain,
    4 feet high and risin'

    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
    We gotta head for higher ground
    We can't come back till the water comes down,
    Five feet high and risin'

    Well, it's five feet high and risin'
