Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Aubrey Mayhew

Well in south Louisiana where the gators live

That's where I was born

And once a year like it or not
G7 C
We had to weather the storm

But I'll never forget the storm

That took my mom and pop away

And I'll never forget the words
G7 C
I heard my pappy say

River's a risin' floods a comin'

High tides got the folks a runnin'
Leave the cotton fields just as they are
Gotta outrun panic that spreads like wildfire

Well I'm six foot seven

And a big man so they say

But when the tide starts a risin'
G7 C
I drop to my knees and pray

A picture comes to me

And so plainly I can see

My daddy in the water
G7 C
And I can still hear him screamin' to me

repeat #3

Well the share croppers cry is caught

In the wind and blown away

After high tide he's got
G7 C
More bills than he can pay

But I'm thankful to survive

And I'm glad to be alive

After thirty long years
G7 C
I've taught my kids to say

repeat #3

G7 C G7 C
Wildfire wildfire
