Down In The Flood
The Derek Trucks Band Lyrics


Crash on the levee, mama

Water's gonna overflow

Swamps gonna rise

And no boats gonna row

Now you can train on down

To William's Point

You can bust your feet

You can rock this joint

But mama, ain't you gonna

Miss your best friend now?

Gonna have to find yourself

Another best friend, somehow

Now don't you try and move me

You're just gonna lose

There's a crash on the levee

And mama, you've been refused

Well, it's sugar for sugar

Salt for salt

If you go down in the flood

It's gonna be your own fault

Oh mama, ain't you gonna

Miss your best friend now?

Gonna have to find yourself

Another best friend, somehow

Well, that high tide's risin'

Mama, don't you let me down

Pack up your suitcase

Mama, don't you make a sound

Now it's king for king

And queen for queen

Gonna be the meanest flood

That anybody's ever seen

Oh mama, ain't you gonna

Miss your best friend now?

You're just gonna have to find yourself

Another best friend, somehow

Crash on the levee, mama,
Water's gonna overflow,
Swamp's gonna rise,
No boat's gonna row.
Now, you can train on down
To Williams Point,
You can bust your feet,
You can rock this joint.
But oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
You're gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow.

Now, don't you try an' move me,
You're just gonna lose.
There's a crash on the levee
And, mama, you've been refused.
Well, it's sugar for sugar
And salt for salt,
If you go down in the flood,
It's gonna be your own fault.
Oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
You're gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow.

Well, that high tide's risin',
Mama, don't you let me down.
Pack up your suitcase,
Mama, don't you make a sound.
Now, it's king for king,
Queen for queen,
It's gonna be the meanest flood
That anybody's seen.
Oh mama, ain't you gonna miss your best friend now?
Yes, you're gonna have to find yourself
Another best friend, somehow.
