Dirty River

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Ain’t no place to lay my head

This rooftop’s gunna be my bed

Dirty River’s gunna rise

 

Waters on the streets of broadway

Waters on the streets of broadway

Washing everything away

This city’s seen some better days

Waters on the streets of broadway

 

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Ain’t no place to lay my head

This rooftop’s gunna be my bed

Dirty River’s gunna rise

 

Call your neighbors, call your friends

Call your neighbors call your friends

Trying to find some place dry

Wanna see that sunshine in the sky

Call your neighbors call your friends

 

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Ain’t no place to lay my head

This rooftop’s gunna be my bed

Dirty River’s gunna rise

 

Flood water surrounds us

Flood water surrounds us

It’s staring to invade our homes

If this rain don’t stop then up we’ll go

Flood water surrounds us

 

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Ain’t no place to lay my head

This rooftop’s gunna be my bed

Dirty River’s gunna rise

 

That Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise

Dirty River’s gunna rise
