Use Barre chords
[E] [D] [E] [D] [E]  
[C] [E] [C] [D] [G]  
[G]Down from the sky, [D]up from the raging [G]sea
In the [G]blink of an eye, [D]water's all you can [G]see
[C]All you could hear was the [G]wind and rain, [C]nobody told us 'bout a [G]hurricane
And [Em]if they had could we es[A]cape such a terrible [D]sound
In [C]Galves[Em]ton there [C]ain't no [D]higher [G]ground
We had [G]nothin but hope when this [D]brand new century be[G]gan
Now there's [G]six thousand gone, [D]some say it might have been [G]ten
We're the [C]finest country and the [G]smartest too, we [C]certainly know more than the [G]Cubans do
So why do we [Em]bury our dead in the [A]water where they all [D]drown
In [C]Galve[Em]ston there [C]ain't no [D]higher [Em]ground
In [C]Galves[Em]ton there [C]ain't no [D]higher [G]ground
The rain gave up and the sea she laid back down
Thereís 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
Woah, in Galveston there ainít no higher ground
