THE DAY THE DEVIL WINDS CAME"

V1

It started out bright and sunny.
In the city of Mardi Gras.
The bayou was full of spirit.
Jazz played from the heart.
But then the storm clouds rolled in.
The sky opened up with rain and wind.
The flood waters came and took everythingaway
The cajun city would never be the same.
The day the Devil winds came.

Chorus:

The Day the Davil Winds Came.
The skies got dark and grey.
The floodwaters poured in
And nearly swept it all away.
We all got on our knees and prayed.
That the Cajun City would be back
again some day.
From Biloxi to Baton Rouge
out onto Mobile Bay.
The Eywall Came Crashing in
and nearly blew it all away.
We never gave up hope.
We fought will all our strength.
We never let Katrina take our hearts away.
Even if it took our homes from our streets.
We'll never be the same.
After those Devil Winds Came.

v2

Its now one year later.
Have we been forgotten?
The government is still asking questions.
Have they even found Bin Laden?
Homes are still destroyed
though we still keep the faith.
That someday the Cajun City will be reborn
and the Devil Winds will stay away.

Chorus:

The Day the Davil Winds Came.
And took it all away.
We all got on our knees and prayed.
That New Orleans would be back
again some day.
From Biloxi to Baton Rouge
out onto Mobile Bay.
The Eywall Came Crashing in
and nearly took it all away.
We never gave up hope.
We fought will all our strength.
We never let Katrina
take our hearts away.
Even if it took our homes from our streets.
We'll never be the same.
After those Devil Winds Came.

Bridge:

We may have almost
lost everything.
But Katrina didn't take our hearts.
We will rebuold as much as we can.
Everyone must do their part.
No matter how hard
it is to face the pain.
We must never forget
the day the Davil Winds Came.

Chorus:

The Day the Davil Winds Came.
And nearly blew it all away.
We all got on our knees and prayed.
That New Orleans would be
backagain some day.
From Biloxi to Baton Rouge
out onto Mobile Bay.
The Eywall Came Crashing in
and nearly took it all away.
We never gave up hope.
We fought will all our strength.
to cope.
We never let Katrina take our hearts
away.
Even if it took our homes
from our streets.
We'll never be the same.
After those Devil Winds Came

Yeah-
No we'll never be the same.
No matter how hard the pain.
We must never forget
The Day the Devil Winds Came.
