Thread Name: Songs About Storms
Subject: RE: Songs About Storms
Nobody has yet mentioned Ernest Stoneman's Story of the Mighty Missisippi about the 1927 flood (I first heard it from the New Lost City Ramblers; many years before I got the re-release of Stoneman's recording)
nor has anybody mentioned a much newer song, Will McLean's "Hold back the waters of Lake Okeechobee"
Cater Family's "The storms are on the ocean" is more about symbolic storms than about real ones, IMHO
