Mysha Lyr Req: Johnstown Flood (12) RE: Lyr Req: Johnstown Flood 29 Jul 20


Yes, difficult for us with a different mother-tongue.
"... beat the town to the ground as the river gave it up"
Doesn't make much sense either. Not the most easy to understand singer.

I think I'd go for "Now the few who got lucky, and the ones on higher ground,
with nothing said faced the dead ..."

Final chorus has the lines in reverse order.

Probably more can be gleaned from playing it a few more times, changing the volume, the speed and all those tricks. If anyone finds the song worth the trouble, let her/him try, but I'm probably not going to. I don't think there's anything worth saving in it.
