      About "Galveston Flood"

      Lyrics for Tony Rice - "Galveston Flood"

      It was the year of 1900 that was 80 years ago
      Death come'd a howling on the ocean and when death calls you've got to go
      Galveston had a sea wall just to keep the water down
      But a high tide from the ocean blew the water all over the town.

      Wasn't that a mighty storm
      Wasn't that a mighty storm in the morning
      Wasn't that a mighty storm
      It blew all the people away.

      The sea began to rolling the ships they could not land
      I heard a captain crying Oh God save a drowning man
      The rain it was a falling and the thunder began to roll
      The lightning flashed like Hell-fire and the wind began to blow

      The trees fell on the island and the houses gave away
      Some they strived and drownded others died every way.

      The trains at the station were loaded with the people all leaving town
      But the trestle gave way with the water and the trains they went on down
      Old death the cruel master when the winds began to blow
      Rode in on a team of horses and cried death won't you let me go.

      The flood it took my mother it took my brother too
      I thought I heard my father cry as I watched my mother go
      Old death your hands are clammy when you've got them on my knee
      You come and took my mother won't you come back after me?
