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

They brought this one out at the Tedeschi Trucks show in Minneapolis a few weeks ago. I went insane.

Zac Jackson

Trucks and Stapelton... Call them The Midnight Riders and make an album of Allman Brothers covers!
