The River ran through Howard County, it was the life blood of the land
C G
It made fields of green tobacco, aching backs and callused hands
C F
Mama talked of a coming battle that the womenfolk had to fight
G F G
C
'Cause the good Lord owned the daytime, but the Devil seemed to own the
night
C F
Well it came up out of nowhere, from a dark and bitter seed
C G
It was the roughest kind of roadhouse and a most unwanted weed
C F
It drew the menfolk like a magnet, the women knew what they had to do
G F G C
So they put it in the hands of Jesus, 'cause they knew that he'd come
through
C
And the rains came and the river swelled
G C
And the more they prayed the more it fell
C G
When the levies broke everybody saw the awesome power of God
C G C
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day
C G C
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away
C F
Now the mothers tell the story, of the week that the river raged
C G
It's a passing of the wisdom to the ears of a tender age
C F
Better walk the straight and narrow, better keep a watchful eye
G F
G C
'Cause there's a symbol of the wrath of heaven in every dark cloud in
the sky
C
'Cause the rains came and the river swelled
G C
And the more they prayed the more it fell
C G
When the levies broke everybody saw the awesome power of God
C G C
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day
C G C
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away
C G C
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day
C G C
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away
C G C
Yes, when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away
