2nd Place
“Mississippi River, Mississippi Town”
Thea Hopkins
Somerville, Massachusetts

Sky spitting rain, crow flying by
Water rising high as cane in July
A bible storm coming, that’s the word whipping ’round
This Mississippi river, this Mississippi town

My oh my, if that levee breaks
It’s gonna cause some big heartache

Pushing and pulling, that river’s getting mad
Last storm took everything we had
Roaring like an engine, plowing it’s way down
This Mississippi river to this Mississippi town

My oh my, if that levee breaks
It’s gonna cause some big heartache

Water stopping tonight at the county line
Only a fool thinks that river’s changed its’ mind
Learn to swim or get to higher ground
This Mississippi river wants this Mississippi town

My oh my, if that levee breaks
It’s gonna cause some big heartache
