The Week the River Raged
Written by: Sara Evans/John Bettis/Jim Rushing
CD: Sara Evans - Three Chords and the Truth
From: Andrew@lyonap.force9.co.uk

C                                                                 F
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
