Texas Flood lyrics



Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan!

Well it’s floodin’ down in Texas, all of the telephone lines are down.
Well it’s floodin’ down in Texas, all of the telephone lines are down.
And I’ve been tryin’ to call my baby,
Lord and I can’t get a single sound.

Well dark clouds are rollin’ in, man I’m standin’ out in the rain.
Well dark clouds are rollin’ in, man I’m standin’ out in the rain.
Yeah flood water keep a rollin’,
man it’s about to drive poor me insane.

Solo

Well I’m leavin’ you baby, Lord and I’m goin’ back home to stay.
Well I’m leavin’ you baby, Lord and I’m goin’ back home to stay.
Well back home I know floods and tornadoes,
baby the sun shines on me every day.
