"Hold Back the Water" as written by Robin Bachman, Charles Turner and Randy Bachman....
Headed 'cross the border
Looking for a place to play
I left the sun behind
I don't mind

But I think that it looked like rain
Hold back the water
I gotta find time to burn
Hold back the water

I gotta find time to burn
Headed west to Georgia
Looking for the road to L.A.
They say the weather's fine

But the sun don't shine
'Cause the smog's always in the way
Hold back the water
I gotta find time to burn

Hold back the water (Yo!)
I gotta find time to burn
I've never played no smoker
You know I've never played no hotdog

The preacher say
I was born this way
With storm cloud in my heart
Hold back the water

I gotta find time to burn
Hold back the water

I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn (Whooo)

Headed 'cross the border
Looking for a place to play
I left the sun behind
I don't mind

But I think that it looked like rain
Hold back the water
I gotta find time to burn
Hold back the water (Yo!)

I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn
I gotta find time to burn

Hold back the water (Hey!)
I gotta find time to burn
