Leftover Salmon

Leftover Salmon is a jam band from Boulder, Colorado, formed in 1989. Their unique blend of bluegrass, rock, country, and Cajun/Zydeco, which the band calls "Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass", has found favor with the jam band scene. The band took a hiatus in 2005, and spent parts of 2007 in a reunion. more »

Nowhere to run,  nowhere to hide.   
No relief from the  risin'  tide.  
Somethin' in the way of the  world has changed, 
broken apart and rearranged.  
 
Chorus:  
And the river's  risin'.                 
Rain keeps pourin'  down.  
And the river's  risin'.                
Oh,  take me to a higher  ground.  

Not too little and  much too late.  
Courting disaster and  tempting  fate.  
Goin' against all  natural laws,  
putting effect  before the  cause.  
 
Chorus  

When will I see the  sun shine again?  
When will this darkness  come to an  end?  
Watchin' and waitin', the  flood waters rise,  
I can't believe what's  before my  eyes.  
 
Chorus
