Track Name: The Great Flood
The cemetery's underwater
And all the bodies float away
Father's crying for his daughter
Who's drifting slow in sweet decay

The hangman steps onto his scaffold
And feels his skin begin to pale
He'd tie the ropes before the tide rolls
And soon he'll be swinging from the rails

We all knew this day would come
We all knew the waves would crash
We all knew the world would fall
But the great flood came at last

The fields are buried by the sand now
And all the flowers softly tear
The birds will never find their land now
And so they'll die in the air

The fleers only stalled their finish
'Cause you can't see the highway, can ya?
It all reminds me of Atlantis
But it looks like the Lusitania

We all knew this day would come
We all knew the waves would crash
We all knew the world would fall
But the great flood came at last
Track Name: Hit the Road With Me
Remember the night when we went into debt
We pooled all our cash and lost all our bets
And we chewed on our fine cigarettes
As they broke the news

Remember we spent the last coin at the bar
Bought a few beers, smoked one last cigar
And we slept 'neath a sky full of stars
And we played the blues

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me

Remember when I traded my shoes
For a half cigarette and some corner-store booze
I thought I had nothing to lose
Until the winter came

Remember the time when I turned out the lights
And we stayed up till dawn just to talk in the night
And everything was right
Until the break of day

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me

I remember the night that we won the war
Raise up the flag unlock the doors
You should sell all the food in your stores
Before it's on again

I remember the moon was hanging high
Toss out the guns and bring out the wine
It's only a matter of time
Before it's gone again

Fill your glass with brandy
Fill your mouth with candy
Leave behind your sorrow
And hit the road with me
