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 Fireballs 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 10-33 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?
