Crescent City Blues
Lyrics
Down in New Orleans they're rising up from the flood (2x)
When the levees broke it was raining water and blood

A storm was coming the warning sure was clear (2x)
Everybody watched....nobody seemed to hear

They were shouting from the river shouting, shouting from the rooftops too (2x)
If help don't come soon the Devil's going to take his due

There were bodies in the water looting on the street (2x)
Temperature is rising the Devil's turning up the heat

When help arrived it was too little too late (2x)
The Devil came and went politicians sit and wait

Next will be fire that's what the Lord did say (2x)
Lord spare New Orleans it's sin been washed away.
