For Fred



Katrina
by me

On the road in Atlanta
When that bitch came to my town
I watched her flood my heart
While I tried not to drown

All the memories I'd planted,
She sent them all crashing down

She took it all away from me
She took it all away from me

But I'm not gonna be hiding
No, I'm gonna come back fighting
And I am gonna be riding
A storm that's bigger than you ever were

Katrina, you can't keep me down
Katrina, you can't make me drown
Katrina, you can't take away my pride
Katrina, you can't make me fear
Although I might shed a tear
For those who've lost
And those who've died
I'm still glad to be alive

On the road to Indiana
When the word came in they'd found
The last of our families
And taken them to solid ground

All the memories I'd planted
Felt like they'd be okay now

She took it all away from me
But I'll be getting it back, you'll see

No matter what you might do to me
I am gonna keep on moving
Memories will always be soothing
But I won't have a nostalgic future

Katrina, you can't keep me down
Katrina, you can't make me drown
Katrina, you can't take away my pride
Katrina, you can't make me fear
Although I might shed a tear
For those who've lost
And those who've died
I'm still glad to be alive

Shelly and Paul
They lost it all
But we'll play as long as we breathe
You couldn't kill the Fat man
And I'll be damned if you'll kill me

On the road to Louisiana
She will once again be strong
That is where my home will be
Forever where I belong

She can't take that away from me
She can't take that away from me

Katrina, you can't keep me down
Katrina, you can't make me drown
Katrina, you can't take away my pride
Katrina, you can't make me fear
Katrina, I'm still standing here
Katrina, you can't take away my pride

Katrina, you can't keep me down
Katrina, you can't make drown
Katrina, you can't take away my pride
Katrina, I'm still glad to be alive

I'm still glad to be alive

I'm still glad to be alive

Nice. Will Fred ever see this?

I am emberassed to say I intended to ask who Katrina was until I read the words and then I didnt need an explanation.

Fred LeBlanc - lead singer, frontman, drummer of Cowboy Mouth.

Cowboy Mouth is from New Orleans. They were out on tour when Katrina went crashing through. But they still lost their homes. Paul (another band member) and his wife, Shelly, lost everything, in fact. And right now they're living out of their tour bus and whatever hotels they may land in along their way. And they've decided to schedule more and more shows coming up to raise money for the hurricane relief stuff.

Fred is greatness.
you have such a man-crush on him.
