Track Name: When the Flood Waters Came
When the Flood Waters Came

Rubies sapphire / diamonds and gold
All the money / hands can hold.
Such a nice place, / flood stole away.
Nothing left now / but hell to pay.

Baby cried /when flood waters came.
Wash me clean, / I pray don't wash ‘em away.
It's hard to live, / so much harder to breathe,
When you've lost / everything you need.

All them riches that shine today
Sure ain't worth the price you pay.
Your brightest dream is sure to fade
The more you hold on the more it slip away.

It's so hard / to start all over again.
These mean ol’ blues / my only friend.
Gotta a song / I still need to sing
Stops the flood / these mem’ries bring.

Them that got, / still got ever’thing.
All we got / is what the morning bring.
All I owned, / was washed away.
It's all changed / now I'm back to stay.

All them riches that shine today
Sure ain't worth the price you pay.
Your brightest dream is sure to fade
The more you hold on the more it slip away.

Rubies sapphire diamonds and gold
Take that money, / can’t take my soul.
Build me a home / of heart and stone.
Atop the hill, / rest my tired bones.

All them riches that shine today
Sure ain't worth the price you pay.
Your brightest dream is sure to fade
The more you hold on the more it slip away.
