1. Pikeville dam is a-caving in, and the waterís coming through

2. Ainít nothing here but the diamond den, and the trail of a mighty storm

3. Just far away from the waterís edge, and a no good river town (goto chorus)

1. The riverís been a-rising, and the rainís still coming down

2. I had a loviní family, and I had a loviní wife
