Hell or High Water
Keep on rising with the tide
Keep that fiddle by your side
When your feet get sore do the old Virginia Reel
Keep your cards up on the table
Keep your feet on the tightrope cable
Try not to fall asleep behind the wheel

You’ve gotta stand your ground
Come Hell or High Water
Don’t let the blues chain you down
Don’t let ‘em snow you under

Don’t go drinking too much whiskey
Don’t go stealing like a gypsy
Beware of anyone who’s grinning
When your back starts creaking
And your bones start squeaking
Then you know your life is just beginning

May you find a four leaf clover
In every field that you walk over
Keep that crazy woman by your side
When the levies start breaking
And the water starts leaking
May you keep on rising with the tide
