From Phil Rosenthall and the Seldom Scene......

Muddy Water

Mary, take the baby, river's risin
That muddy water's takin back the land
This old frame house won't take one more beating
Ain't no time to stay and make a stand

Mornin light shows water in the valley
My daddy's grave just went below the line
Things to save, you just can't take em with you
Mud'll swallow all you leave behind

    I won't be back to start all over
    What I felt before is gone
    Mary take the baby, river's rising
    Muddy water's takin back our home

Roads are gone, there's just one way to leave here
Turn my back on what I left below
Shiftin lands and broken farms around me
Muddy water's changin all I know

    Hard to say just what I'm losin
    I ain't never felt so all alone
    Mary, thake the baby, river's risin
    That muddy water's takin back our home
