"Tupelo" as written by and Johnny Ray Allen....
Did you read about the flood?
Happened long time ago
In Tupelo, Mississippi
There were thousands of lives
Destroyed

It rained, it rained
Both night and day
The poor people was worried
Didn't have no place to go

Could hear many people cryin' "Lord, have mercy
'Cause You're the only one that we can turn to"

Happened a long time ago
A little town
Way back in Mississippi
In Tupelo

There was women and there was children
They were screamin' and cryin'
Cryin', "Lord, have mercy
You're the only one now that we can turn to"

Way back down in Mississippi, a little country town
I know you read about it
'Cause I'll never forget it
The mighty flood in Tupelo, Mississippi
Been years ago

Lord, have mercy
Wasn't that a mighty time?
Tupelo's gone
