      Lyrics for Sara Evans - "The Week The River Raged"

      The river ran through Howard County
      It was the life blood of the land
      It make fields of green tobacco
      Aching backs and callused hands
      Mama talked of a coming battle
      That the women folk had to fight
      'Cause the good lord owned the daytime
      But the devil seemed to own the night

      Well, it came up out of nowhere
      From a dark and bitter seed
      It was the roughest kind of roadhouse
      And a most unwanted weed
      It drew the men folk like a magnet
      The women knew what they had to do
      So they put it in the hands of Jesus
      'Cause they knew that he'd come through

      And the rains came and the river swelled
      And the more they prayed the more it fell
      When the levies broke everybody saw
      The awesome power of God
      Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came
      To bring a brighter day
      'Cause when the flood hit Howard County
      All the sins were washed away

      Now the mothers tell the story
      Of the week that the river raged
      It's the passing of the wisdom
      To the ears of tender age
      Better walk the straight and narrow
      Better keep a watchful eye
      'Cause there's a symbol of the wrath of Heaven
      In every dark cloud in the sky

      And the rains came and the river swelled
      And the more they prayed the more it fell
      When the levies broke everybody saw
      The awesome power of God
      Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came
      To bring a brighter day
      'Cause when the flood hit Howard County
      All the sins were washed away
