Lyrics

Our little home by the river
I'm afraid it is no more
All but one were delivered
From the terror of the storm

Swept away by muddy water
Damn the river, blame the rain
It swept away my only daughter
Left me here drowned in pain

I showed the way by the lightening
Fought the current and the mud
All but one hung on tightly
Safe above the rising flood

Swept away by muddy water
Damn the river, blame the rain
It swept away my only daughter
Left me here drowned in pain

When I saw my baby struggling
Her mournful cry I could not stand
How strong her eyes were begging
But I could not reach her outstretched hand

Swept away by muddy water
Damn the river, blame the rain
It swept away my only daughter
Left me here drowned in pain

(Mark W. Winchester)
