lyrics

Got a bag of sugar
Can't trade it in for salt
Dinner's rotting in the kitchen
But I know it's not my fault
I gave the dog your rations
Cause you promised me you'd stay
Mama said the flood would wash it all away

Started drinking coffee
Cause you hate the bitter taste
Started letting Jimmy
wrap his arms around my waist
I'm saving all my money
Cause I've got debts and bills to pay
Mama said the flood would wash it all away

Grabbing what I can
Before the water breaks the levee
But I'm leaving you behind, kid
Your bones are just too heavy

Maybe I could make a killing
California's not too far
I'm desperate and I'm willing
and I'm lowering the bar
I used to try for happy
Now I just try for okay
Mama said the flood would wash it all away
God, won't the flood come and wash it all away
