about

New Orleans feel. Song is about the hurricane of 2006.

lyrics

Surrounded, Surrounded
Surrounded by the water
Cryin, tryin’ to make sense of it all
The buses are drivin’
To the Louisiana border
You know when I get there
I’ll try to give you a call

CHORUS: Katrina, Katrina
You couldn’t a been any meaner
Stealing my future
Wash away my home
Your fury was formin’
Arrived without a warnin’
Took over my city
And just like that, you’re gone

Auntie Luisa, she doesn’t have a visa
No credit won’t get it
Ain’t nothin’ she can do
Can’t find her babies, no ifs, buts or maybes
Somewhere, they’re out there
In the Blue Bayou

CHORUS:

We’re standin’ on the rooftops
Hide between the raindrops
Waitin’ and prayin’ for a helicopter ride
The bodies are floatin’ The rescuers are boatin’
Ain’t nothin’ but water, looking far and wide

The ocean was heavy, pounding on the levee
Water was risin’, past the second floor
People were tryin’, but mostly they were cryin’
Feelin’ so helpless, can’t do anything more

CHORUS:
