RIP Greg Trooper – No Higher Ground

Age 61 of pancreatic cancer. The losses keep coming

Down from the sky
Up from the raging sea
In the blink of an eye
Water’s all you can see

All you could hear was the wind and rain
Nobody told us ’bout a hurricane
And if they had
Could we escape such a terrible sound
In Galveston
There ain’t no higher ground

We had nothin’ but of hope
When this brand new century began
Now there’s six thousand gone
Some say it might have been ten
We’re the finest country
And the smartest too
We certainly know more
Than the Cubans do
So why do we bury our dead
In the water where they all drown
In Galveston
There ain’t no higher ground
Whoah in Galveston
There ain’t no higher ground

The rain gave up
And the sea she laid back down
There’s no tellin’ how long
‘Til all the bodies are found
Does Washington care
Does Houston know
We’re an island in the gulf of Mexico
Guess they’ll be lending a hand
Just as soon as the word gets ’round
They say in Galveston
There ain’t no higher ground
Whoah in Galveston
There ain’t no higher ground
