Hell or High Water
(Tom Peterson)
Golly Gee Music (ASCAP)

from the CD Albert and Gage - Dakota Lullaby  (MoonHouse Records)

Keep on rising with the tide
Keep that fiddle by your side
When your feet get sore do the old Virginia Reel
Keep your cards up on the table
Keep your feet on the tightrope cable
Try not to fall asleep behind the wheel 

Youíve gotta stand your ground
Come Hell or High Water
Donít let the blues chain you down
Donít let Ďem snow you under

Donít go drinking too much whiskey
Donít go stealing like a gypsy
Beware of anyone whoís grinning
When your back starts creaking
And your bones start squeaking
Then you know your life is just beginning

May you find a four leaf clover
In every field that you walk over
Keep that crazy woman by your side
When the levies start breaking
And the water starts leaking
May you keep on rising with the tide
