Five Feet High And Rising

Bob Dylan


  DYLAN/CASH recording session, Nashville TN - 18.feb.1969  

How high's the water, mama?
How high's the water, Bob?
Two feet high and risin'
How high's the water, Bob?
Two feet high and risin'

We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
That's the only thing we got left that'll float
It's already over all the wheat and oats
Two feet high and risin'

How high's the water, John?
Three feet high and risin'
How high's the water, Bob?
Three feet high and risin'

Well, the hives are gone
I've lost my bees
The chickens are sleepin'
In the willow trees
Cow's in water up past her knees
Three feet high and risin'

How high's the water, mama?
Four feet high and risin'
How high's the water, papa?
Four feet high and risin'

Hey, come look through the window pane
The bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
Looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain
Four feet high and risin'.  up
