Lyrics for Change by William Clark Green :
The water’s floodin’ down by the river
You better pull your boats ashore
I’ve been livin’ off beans and cornbread
Spent my quarters at the dollar store

Baby don’t worry because I feel things are goin’ to change
The flood is comin’, but it never comes before the rain

Little sister you know she’s dyin’
Now who the hell’s going to pay her bills
Mama Jenkins you know she’s prayin’
Tossin’ her quarters in the wishin’ well

Mama don’t worry because I feel things are goin’ to change
The flood is comin’, but it never comes before the rain

Now little brother he’s a little wild
I can’t say much for myself
Daddy left us a bast*rd child
Didn’t leave us nothin’, but a dollar bill

Daddy don’t worry we don’t need you anyway
I spent fifty cents, two quarters in change
Daddy don’t worry we don’t need you anyway
I spent fifty cents, two quarters in change
