ALREADY GONE

 
BIG EASY DOWN

Well I'm sitting on the bayou with a broken heart
I can't believe just what I found
Oh, the way the only watched us as those levees broke apart
And the way they let Big Easy Down

Well there was people climbing, clambering -- couches up upon they roofs
While the water swelled up all around
You think your Gov'ment loves you buddy, there's your proof
Oh the way they let Big Easy Down

We're all alone boys but we're not afraid
We know they can't keep us down
By Grace alone are lowly sinners saved
We might be lost but we'll be found

And those slimy politicians with their big fat mouths 
Stumbled 'cross the stage like drunken clowns
We'll chase them tarred and feathered from the sweet dark south
For the way they let Big Easy Down

We're all alone, little girl, but we're not afraid
We know they can't keep us down
By Grace alone are lowly sinners saved
We might be lost but we'll be found

Still they wag their crooked fingers, spit oaths out they can't keep
While people scrape their lives up off the ground
Woe, a great, a mighty nation hang your head and weep
For the way you let Big Easy Down
