C                                                                 F 
The River ran through Howard County, it was the life blood of the land 
        C                               G 
It made fields of green tobacco, aching backs and callused hands 
     C                                  F 
Mama talked of a coming battle that the womenfolk had to fight 
           G                                    F               G 
C 
'Cause the good Lord owned the daytime, but the Devil seemed to own the 
night 
 
C                                                      F 
Well it came up out of nowhere, from a dark and bitter seed 
           C                                G 
It was the roughest kind of roadhouse and a most unwanted weed 
            C                                F 
It drew the menfolk like a magnet, the women knew what they had to do 
        G                                         F         G         C 
So they put it in the hands of Jesus, 'cause they knew that he'd come 
through 
 
C 
And the rains came and the river swelled 
        G                         C 
And the more they prayed the more it fell 
C                                       G 
When the levies broke everybody saw the awesome power of God 
         C                                          G                C 
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day 
 
                C                                G                C 
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away 
 
C                                                          F 
Now the mothers tell the story, of the week that the river raged 
       C                            G 
It's a passing of the wisdom to the ears of a tender age 
C                                           F 
Better walk the straight and narrow, better keep a watchful eye 
                 G                                      F 
G      C 
'Cause there's a symbol of the wrath of heaven in every dark cloud in 
the sky 
 
 
C 
'Cause the rains came and the river swelled 
        G                         C 
And the more they prayed the more it fell 
C                                       G 
When the levies broke everybody saw the awesome power of God 
         C                                          G                C 
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day 
 
                C                                G                C 
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away 
 
         C                                          G                C 
Then the clouds rolled back and the rainbow came to bring a brighter day 
 
                C                                G                C 
'Cause when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away 
              C                                G                C 
Yes, when the flood hit Howard County, all the sins were washed away
