Shady Grove Gonna Blow

Creeks risin muddy and rough
Purple pansies drownin they ain’t so tough
Rusty blue chevy off the shoulder of the road
Nobody wants her cause she’s so damned old

I been sittin here for hours with a shiver in my bone
People seekin shelter down on Hoodoo Road
I’m wrapped up tight in my granny mom’s quilt
Worried bout this house that my granddaddy built

Shady Grove gonna blow
ain’t no place to go
Yeah Shady Grove gonna blow
Yeah you better get yourself low

Ain’t nothin to fear we’re in the presence of the Lord
Ride the wind home seekin heaven’s reward
Run down to the graveyard you tell all your kin
river rises up we’ll be together again

Shady Grove gonna blow
ain’t no place to go
Yeah Shady Grove gonna blow
Yeah you better get yourself low

Ain’t nothin to fear we’re in the presence of the Lord
Ride the wind home seekin heaven’s reward
Run down to the graveyard you tell all your kin
river rises up we’ll be together again

Shady Grove gonna blow
ain’t no place to go
Yeah Shady Grove gonna blow
Yeah you better get yourself low
