Big Blow

Verse
Living in the delta it's a mighty fine place, I like a living in the sun
Catfish n crawdads n and shrimp gumbo, catching gators, is a lots of fun
Sun go down and the moon come out, take Marie up into town
Weatherman say, we cannot stay, or everybody's gonna drown
Chorus
Hurricane a coming, got to pack it up to go
Bayou is a rising, no room in a little pirogue
We left our shack, with the cloths on our back, going to higher ground
Big blow a coming, got to get outta of this town
Lead
Verse
Going on up to Lafayette, the bayou's filling up from rain
So much water in this little bayou, it's looking like the Pontchartrain
Big old gator, go swimming by, I can't even find the road
Ain't no time for fussin and crying, gotta hurry up and go
Chorus
Hurricane a coming, got to pack it up to go
Bayou is a rising, no room in a little pirogue
We left our shack, with the cloths on our back, going to higher ground
Big blow a coming, got to get outta of this town
Lead
Hurricane a coming, got to pack it up to go
Bayou is rising, no room in a little pirogue
We'll never go back, to our bayou shack, nothing left there I know
Big blow a coming, got to find a new shatoe
Big Blow a coming
Big Blow a coming
Big Blow a coming
Big Blow a coming
Come on Marie the rain is coming down sacra blue
