Song of the Day #3,107: ‘Texas Flood’ – Stevie Ray Vaughan

texas9

[Verse 1]
Well it’s floodin’ down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
And I’ve been tryin’ to call my baby
Lord, and I can’t get a single sound

[Verse 2]
Well dark clouds are rollin’ in
Man I’m standin’ out in the rain
Yeah floodwater keep a rollin’
Man it’s about to drive poor me insane

[Verse 3]
Well, I’m leavin’ you baby
Lord, and I’m goin’ back home to stay
Well back home there’s no floods or tornados
Baby, and the sun shines every day
