Testo:

Did you read about the flood? 
A long time ago, in a country town, in Tupelo, Mississippi 
It rained and it rained, it rained both night and day 
The people got worried, they had no place to go. And no one taind the lord but you
...........
Save me save me from the muddy flood

There were women and there was children, screaming and crying, 
"Lord ..... but you?
please ....
the country town,Tupelo, Mississippi 
Tupelo is gone
