lyrics

Water rising south of Plaquemine
Hole in the levy six miles wide
Hurricane don’t tell no lies
Big oaks falling like toothpicks in the wind
White swords of lightning ring in the dawn
Nothing gonna change this is where you belong

Sparks flying down that telephone line
Gotta tell someone that you don’t mind dying
Can’t wash the soul out of these eyes
Hang on tight, my love

Night falling; throw down what you got
That saving grace is a cruel master with a bitter after taste
Ain't no need to apologize, no call for prayer
But riddle me this: why do you care
Cause even in the darkest skies, a lonely sun still shines
And the hurricane don’t tell no lies

Chorus
