Lyrics

Corn Branch Creek is rising
She’s covering up my lawn
and if it don’t stop raining
she gonna be in my house ‘fore long
I went to bed last night
she was steady and strong
I woke up this morning
and she was still pouring it on

I hear the sounds of rushing water
gotta move us up a little higher
I hear the sounds of rushing water
gotta move us up a little higher
on the ladder

Now metaphorically speaking
it’s really about my debt
I’m working twice as hard
but I can’t get out in front of it
Eight ball and her wisdom
She knows that she’s gotta hold on me
so I shrug it off, and I charge it up
and I take care of my family

CHORUS

Now this burned one stands
in the frost of yesterday
and I spend so much time
trying to scrape it all away
I overheard some angels
they were talking about forgiveness
and what it’s gonna take to
try and convince me

CHORUS
