Me and my friends drove down to the riverside
With a half case of beer and a couple bottles of wine
And the rain started to fall
We tipped our bottles and the river overflowed.

Floodwater, carry me away
Take my mind to another place
Drown my sorrow, kill my fear
Floodwater, take me far away from here.

Guitars ringin', hazy smoke filled room
People swayin', two-step drunken fools
And it looks like stormy weather
Emptied my glass, and everything got better.

Floodwater, carry me away
Send my mind to another place
Drown my sorrow, kill my fear
Floodwater, take me far away from here.

Far away from the deep blue Texas skies
The Red River creature tried to steal away my mind
But the way, the truth and the light
Would not forsake the one for '99.

Floodwater, carry me away
Send my mind to another place
Drown my sorrow, kill my fear
Floodwater, take me far away from here
