My name is Eliza
I live by the river 
My daughter Louise 
Will be three in July
If July ever comes 
It's beginning to feel like
The water will never
Surrender the field

Everyone knows
The river will swell 
But they always find money 
They always find money
They always find money for floods

The president came
In a green helicopter
He and the governor walked all around
My sister broke down
And he gave her a hug
He told her he'd do everything that he could

Everyone knows
The river will swell 
But they always find money 
They always find money
They always find money for floods

When I was sixteen
I went out with a boy
I'd tell you his name
If I thought it would help
He told me he loved me
And tossed me a girl
The bigger my belly
The faster he ran

Everyone knows
The river will swell 
But they always find money 
They always find money
They always find money for floods

My name is Eliza
I live by the river 
My daughter Louise 
Will be three in July
If July ever comes 
It's beginning to feel like
The water will never
Surrender the field
