Wildfire Recorded by Johnny Paycheck Written by Aubrey Mayhew
C 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' G7 Leave the cotton fields just as they are C 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
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
G7 C G7 C Wildfire wildfire
