Year Three, Week Eleven: “I Was There”

Lyrics:

I was there when the bottom fell out
when the bottom fell out
I was there when the bottom fell out
when the bottom fell out
When red blood turned to brown
When the ship capsized and the sailor drowned
I was there when the bottom fell out
when the bottom fell out

And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the bottom fell out
And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the bottom fell out

I was there when the levees broke
when the levees broke
I was there when the levees broke
when the levees broke
When the ladder ran out of rungs
When the holy men wept and spoke in tongues
I was there when the levees broke
when the levees broke

And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the levees broke
And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the levees broke

Close your eyes and clench your fists
Heaven’s just another town like this

I was there when the vow was said
when the vow was said
I was there when the vow was said
when the vow was said
When there’s nothing left to barter
When the night gets cold and the ice gets harder
I was there when the vow was said
when the vow was said

And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the vow was said
And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the vow was said
And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the levees broke
And where were you
Where were you
Where were you when the bottom fell out
