C              Am
On the day the levee broke
    F                   C
The water did rise, The flowers did choke 
  C                      Am
I sat in my living room, took one last toke 
       F                    G
Then I watched it all drift away 

       Am            C             F
Now my credit card's ringing up at thirty percent 
          Am     C     F
There's a man in India wondering where the money went 
    C G     F
But I can't pay 

     C                 Am
So I sat on my roof In Lake Pontchartrain 
        F                         C
Singing woe to my chimney Singing woe to the rain
  C                  Am 
A stranger came by I never caught his name 
   F                           G
He said he's rowing to the Rio Grande 

Am        C          F
Air Force One a blue streak in the sky
    Am         C         F                     
Mr. President, You can't afford to lie
      C       G         F 
Cause I can't afford to pay

          C  Am                F               C       
Hurricane Angel I'm lifting my eyes over Baton Rouge 
C                         Am
Lift up your wings let me hear your voice singing 
        F                         G
Can you turn these black skies to blue again? 

    Am            C          F
I'm laying on the floor of a trailer at night 
     Am      C        F
with sixteen refugees waiting on daylight 
C G     F
I can't pay 

           C                  Am
I caught a flatbed ford up to Baton Rouge 
          F                       C
with four worn out souls and one corkscrew
        C                         Am 
You can drown New Orleans but you can't drown the blues
   F              G    
so bartender pour away 

Am      C          F
Exxon's having one hell of a year
Am            C                  F
three bucks a gallon man they're making it clear 
     C G     F
that I can't pay.

C     F     Am
Lord, Lord, Lord
           F                C 
We haven't spoken in many a day 
  C                     Am
I got myself in trouble down in the Ninth Ward 
        F                      G
thought I'd send a prayer your way 

Am    C            F
On my windowsill's A stack of insurance bills 
Am       C        F
A man in Delaware says I can't have the pills 
C     G     F
until I can pay

Lift up your wings let me hear your voice singing 
        F                         G
Can you turn these black skies to blue again? 

    Am            C          F
I'm laying on the floor of a trailer at night 
     Am      C        F
with sixteen refugees waiting on daylight 
C G     F
I can't pay 

C        G      F
Somebody should pay 

C              Am
On the day the levee broke 
    F                      C
The water did rise and the flowers did choke 
  C                      Am
I sat in my living room, took one last toke 
      F                    C
and I watched it all drift away
