What has happened 'round here is the winds have changed
Cloud rolled in from the north and it start to rain
Rained real hard and it rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

River rose all day, the river rose all night
Some people got lost in the flood, some people got away alright
The river have busted through clear down to Plaquemine
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

Louisiana,
Louisiana
They're trying to wash us away, they're trying to wash us away
Oh Louisiana,
Louisiana
They're trying to wash us away, they're trying to wash us away

President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
With a little fat man with a notepad in his hand
President said, "hey, little fat man, isn't it a shame what the river has done to this poor cracker's land?"
Then he got back on Air Force One

Louisiana,
Louisiana
They're trying to wash us away, they're trying to wash us away
Louisiana,
Louisiana,
They're trying to wash us away, they're trying to wash us away
They're trying to wash us away.
