Did you read about the flood? Happened long time ago In Tupelo, Mississippi There were thousands of lives Destroyed It rained, it rained Both night and day The poor people was worried Didn't have no place to go Could hear many people cryin' "Lord, have mercy 'Cause You're the only one that we can turn to" Happened a long time ago A little town Way back in Mississippi In Tupelo There was women and there was children They were screamin' and cryin' Cryin', "Lord, have mercy You're the only one now that we can turn to" Way back down in Mississippi, a little country town I know you read about it 'Cause I'll never forget it The mighty flood in Tupelo, Mississippi Been years ago Lord, have mercy Wasn't that a mighty time? Tupelo's gone
