Originally a skirmish song with the prompt "Winter River" provided by @corinnecurcio.
Since then it got a name change, reworked lyrics and a full band track. I'm liking this version.
The storm clouds broke And the rain came down And the folks were trapped by the water In the streets of the town Get in your boats Load up your pack Don't care if the god damned rain lets up We ain't never comin' back Ch Wicked river (you're) the devil in disguise Ragin' hellfire demon water from the skies Oh wicked river. We built the levy Before the winter came Then watched the wicked river rise Swollen up with rain Total devastation Spreadin' across the land Ain't lookin' for salvation We could sure use a helpin' hand [ch] Vs (gtr) We're hurtin' here Busted up and bruised This is ten times worse Than the picture you saw on the news Imagine watching Your whole life drift away Swept clean, a bitter scene Revelation judgement day.
