Lyrics

KATRINA BROUGHT THE WATER (by Scott Detweiler)

Oh Katrina brought the water
To to the streets of New Orleans
Oh Katrina brought the water
To the streets of New Orleans
To the shores of Mississippi
And to the cryin eyes of me

So many dead refridgerators
Laid out in the street
(like an alabaster grave yard)
So many dead refridgerators
Laid out in the street
See when the water cut the power
It rotted all of their milk and meat

Oh my brother's gone to Houston
Lord so many have moved away
Oh my brother's gone to Houston
Lord so many have moved away
All my friends and kin are scattered
But my folks is gonna stay

I pray to God up in heaven
That there'll be no more hurricanes
I pray to God up in heaven
That there'll be no more hurricanes
Cause New Orleans is cryin
And her skies they look like rain
Oh and her skies now they look just like rain
And her skies now they look just like rain
Just like rain, bae
Just like rain, bae
Just like rain, baby, rain baby, rain baby
Rain, rain, rain, rain
It look just like rain baby
Look just like rain
