  • 1. blue tarp blues

blue tarp blues
(Sonny Landreth)

Air Force One had a heck of a view
Air Force One had a heck of a view
Lookin' down on the patchwork
Of the blue tarp blues

I went a walkin' through the water
Sprung a leak in my shoe
I went a walkin' through the water
Sprung a leak in my shoe
Well that hole in my sole
Give me the blue tarp blues
I got the blues
I got the blue tarp blues

There's a crack in the ceiling
And the system too
There's a crack in the ceiling
And the system too
But we got full coverage
Of the blue tarp blues

I got the blues
I got the blue tarp blues

No it wasn't the weather
That sank me and you
It was a bad mix of
Politics greed and fools
That levee of lies couldn't
Hold back the truth
We are in deep but not out of reach
Thow me somthin' mister

I'm gonna fly my colors
And watch for you
I'm gonna fly my colors
And watch for you
Like a flag of hope
Above the blue tarp blues
I got the blues
I got the blue tarp blues
