Louisiana, 1927 by Randy Newman

What has happened down here is the winds have changed.
Clouds roll in from the north and it's starting to rain.
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 and it rose all night.
Some people got lost in the flood.
Some people got away all right.
This river has busted clear through down to Plaquemines.
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline.

President Coolidge came down in a railroad train.
With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand.
President say, "Little fat man, now ain't it a shame,
what the river has done
to this poor cracker's land."

CHORUS
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tryin' 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
