Run for your life boys, there’s nothing left to do
The Pikeville Dam is cavin’ in and the water’s comin’ through
The river’s been a-risin’ and the rain’s still comin’ down
For fourteen days and nights It’s gonna wash away the town

Chorus

So let her roll
Roll on muddy dream
Let her roll, takin’ everything


It’s washed away the houses, now the road is almost gone
Ain’t nothin’ here but the dyin’ and dead
and the trail of a mighty storm
I had a lovin’ family, lord, I had a lovin’ wife
Till the Chickasaw River and the wind and rain
come and robbed them of their life

Chorus

So let her roll
Roll on muddy dream
Let her roll, takin’ everything


I don’t know where I'm goin, Lord, I don’t know where I’m bound
Just far away from the water’s edge and a no-good river town

So let her roll
Roll on muddy dream
Let her roll, takin’ everything

So let her roll
Roll on muddy dream
Let her roll, takin’ everything

Let her roll...
