lyrics

Well, day and night the rain fell,
The storm cast an evil spell,
The river began to swell,
And the people began to wail.
The rain came for forty days,
The high priest began to pray,
The clear skies turned to gray,
And the people began to wail.

Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.

The cotton fields they turned to mud
When the highland began to flood,
The angels lit from above,
When the rivers, they turned to blood,
And the four walls, they gave away,
The people they tried to save,
As the building got swept away,
And the children got swept away.

Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.

The people, they left their home,
And their children start to moan,
As the waters, they start to climb,
And the babies, they start to cryin’.
They say, “Hey!
Its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.”
