What's happened
Down here
Is the wind's
Have changed
Clouds rolled
In from the north
And it started to rain
It rained real hard
And it rained
For a real long time
Six feet of water
In the streets
Of Evangeline
The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people
Got lost in the flood
Some people
Got away all right
The river had busted
Through clear
Down to Plaquemines
Six feet of water
In the streets
Of Evangeline

Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tyrin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away
Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away

President came down
In his big airplane
With his little fat man
With a notepad
In his hand
President say
'Little fat man
Isn't it a shame?
What the river has done
To this poor
Farmer's land

Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tyrin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tryin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away
They's tryin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away
