Higher Than The Levee

The Giving Tree Band - Vacilador

Featured on:

Baby stands on his own two feet

His momma played the rock n’ roll

His daddy worked for the union to save his soul

 

He shed a tear but he never cried

He headed out west and he never tired

He wanted to live his life before he goes...

 

Before he goes

On down the road

 

And it climbed higher than the levee

But the damn she didn’t break

And we cried all the way to Texas in the rain

 

And to lend a helping hand

Was a chance she didn’t take

Now he’s holding back the sorrow and the pain

 

He had a hammer that he knew how to swing

But the railroad was his daddy’s thing

So he got himself a guitar and he learned to make it sing

 

He met a girl just the other day

He thought he found love but got shipped away

He wanted to say goodbye before he goes...

 

Before he goes

On down the road
