Blackwater Boys

You never saw such wind and rain!

You knew the levee had to break

and when that rising water came

so fast you couldn't get away

you climbed up on your roof and then you had to wait

but the Blackwater boys, sometimes they shoot to kill.

You might die of thirst but you'd better not steal.

That bottle of water might cost you your life and it will.

Under that hot hot southern sun

day after day and nothing comes --

no food, no water, no medicine.

People are dying all around

but you'd better not help yourself, they might shoot you down

because the Blackwater boys...

Mr. Brown rolled up his sleeves

so he could look good on T.V.

but after he made his little speech

he had to get something to eat.

He didn't give a damn about the folks on the street

but the Blackwater boys...

You don't need a crystal ball

to see how tomorrow might fall,

liberty up against the wall

and vigilante justice for all

but if you need some security, I guess you know who to call

because the Blackwater boys...
