From the album El Camino Real

Lyrics

HURRICANE
Well she blew in fast like a Lou'siana storm
Kinda furious and wild, kinda without a warning
Tearing up all the docks with the wind and rain
Causin' all kinds of trouble on Lake Pontchartrain
Me I was swept away
Just like flotsam on the river
Barely holding
Doing the best that I can
Whoa, oh, oh

Well the storm blowed by and we settled in
From the mud and the mire and the water and the sin
And the sun come up, make all alright
Got a thankful heart we made it through the night
Now it's you and me
In this big old world we're living in
Yeah we're holding on
Doing the best that we can

Yeah me mama I got I no regrets
We got forty two hundred and these cigarettes
And I don't know how far we'll get
But they can't say we weren't trying
Living life, we're living free
Got no time for mediocrity
And I don't know as far as I see
It's best we take these chances
Hey, at least we’re trying
While the world just goes on dying
Whoa, oh, oh

Well they'll surely wonder how we ever came to be
What's a girl like you with a guy like me
Yeah, but they don't know how I can make you smile
They don't know how you drive me wild
Let 'em speculate while we go on and do the living
Yeah, we’re holding on
Doing the best that we can

And me, mama I got I no regrets
We got forty two hundred and these cigarettes
And I don't know how far we'll get
But they can't say we weren't trying
Living life, we're living free
Got no time for mediocrity
And I don't know as far as I see
It's best we take these chances

Me, mama I got I no regrets
We got forty two hundred and these cigarettes
And I don't know how far we'll get
But they can't say we weren't trying
Living life, we're living free
Got no time for mediocrity
And I don't know as far as I see
It's best we take these chances
Hey, at least we’re trying
While the world just goes on dying
Oh, whoa, whoa
Yeah, but at least we are trying
While the world just goes on dying
