Here Comes the Water

album: Romancing the Moment (2005), track 12 of 23
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Just about sundown
The wind got strange
Coming off the prairie
Just like the tide
Spilling down
The Never Summer Range
Old man wind
On a nighttime ride

On the telephone wires
Heat lightning
All over the park
Somewhere in the distance
There's a fire
The rains begin
It gets dark

Three feet of water
Running the street
Picking up speed
Picking up power
There where the two
Rivers meet
They say it hit
Fifty miles an hour

Nowhere for the water
To go now but down
And down, down, down
The water did go
Everyone in Estes Park Town
Listening, heard him
On the radio

Patrolman Purdy
Number 213
Racing the canyon
Like a dash
Warning everybody there
By the stream
Turned in time
To see the splash

My car won't move
And every radio
Could hear
The mud is up
To my windows
And then without
A trace of fear

He said
Here comes the water
213, what's your 10-20, over?
213, do you copy, come back?
213, what is your 20, come back?
Clear all channels we have a Mayday.
Mayday, what's your 20, come back?
Mayday, do you copy, over?
Mayday, do you copy?
Mayday, do you copy, over?
Mayday, do you copy, over?
Mayday, come back!
Come back, come back!
213, what's your 20, over?
