The Lyrics

This is actually a few weeks late, seeing as the people are getting help- spotty though it may be. Oh well...
They knew from the time
That they started tracking'
The tropical depression's on its way
And soon a hurricane would be attacking
How are we going to save our MS and LA?

It went up the line
And they got to talking
But they had more important things to say
So, nothing big was done,
They sat just watching
Surely no danger could come to MS and LA...

Everyone could see
The storm they were tracking could get real strong
They knew it was coming, it wouldn't be long
It looked like a small one
But, oh my, how wrong they'd be
Once it hit the water out if the gulf down there
It jumped to class 5 and they really got scared
Her name is Katrina
and what a nightmare she'll be
We'll see...

The nation looked up
This storm was a-brewin'
With poor that can't afford to get away
The landfall came and left the towns in ruins
With nothing but flooding and death for MS and LA

Now the country sees
The road are all flooded inside those towns
No one is talking, the lines are all down
And hundreds are missing
They feared they had drowned that day
You can see the people pleading for help down there
From Red Cross or FEMA, they really don't care
They wanted a rescue
They needed it there today, TODAY!

(guitar solo)

Now the world can see
The rescuing efforts were way too small
There's thousands of people, they can't help them all
They're hungry and thirsty
Got no place at all to stay
You can see the bodies dead in the streets out there
There's someone to blame but they really don't care
Our folks are in trouble
Let's help them down there today
