Over The Levee

Trisha Gagnon

It had been a hard winter
So much snow and not a sound
Now song birds are singing
Rushing water floods the ground

Over the levee
The water’s spilling down
Breakin’ the levee
Gonna wash away our town

Our farm land is under water
No harvest time this year
We'll work hard to reclaim it
With blood sweat and tears


Wild river you tried to rob us
But you can't take everything
'Cause we still have each other
And hope a new day will bring
