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.  
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.  

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.
