It'll Take More Than a Storm

Written By: Brenda Anderson

IT ‘LL TAKE MORE THAN A STORM
Verse 1
He came crashing ashore, in the form of a storm
And, he would call hisself Katrina
Ah, but we all knew she was the devil
As,he took aim at Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana
While he kept on his northerly track
He was constantly looking back
Cause he just knew he had turned the Gulf of Mexico into a sea of tears
Oh, but the joke was on the devil
PRE-CHORUS
BECAUSE WE WERE TAUGHT AT AN EARLY AGE
IF YOU FALL OFF THAT HORSE YOU GET RIGHT BACK ON
AND, YOU FINISH THAT RACE, EVEN IF YOU COME IN LAST PLACE
CHORUS
YEAH, WE MIGHT BEND IN THE WIND, BUT ,WE DON’T BREAK
CAUSE ,IT ‘LL TAKE MORE THAN A STORM,TO KEEP THE SOUTH DOWN
,IT ‘LL TAKE MORE THAN A STORM
Verse 2
Now, you know how this story goes,
The devil’s tried this once before
When he came in the guise of a civil war
Yeah, he pitted brother against brother
This time we would all brace one another
From New York City, to a small town in Missouri
On A August day Katrina would make history
But,so will we
(repeat) PRE -CHORUS
(repeat) CHORUS
BRIDGE
Long after the storm is gone, the south will remain strong
(repeat) PRE-CHORUS
(repeat) CHORUS
TAG
YOU CAN’T KEEP THE SOUTH DOWN
NO,YOU CAN’T KEEP THE SOUTH DOWN
FADE
IT’LL TAKE MORE THAN A STORM
MUCH MORE THAN A STORM

Everywhere You're Going

Written By: Brenda Anderson

Everywhere You’re Going
Verse 1
As he walks in the room,he takes a long deep breath
Hop’n noone will notice he’s scared half to death
Lord, only knows he needs this AA meeting,to keep from drowning
Cause he’s been sink’n deeper,and deeper in the pool of whiskey he’s been drink’n
Before he can take another step, a guy not much older taps him on the shoulder
Says Hi, I’m Ben,you look like you could use a friend
Just like he could read his mind,this is what he said
(Chorus)
I want you to know you’re never alone
Cause I’ve in those shoes, I know exactly what you’re going through
I’ve felt all your fears, and I’ve cried,oh, how I’ve cried every single tear
Everywhere,yeah, Everywhere you’re going, I’ve already been
Verse 2
The little guy,with big brown eyes standing by her side
Stare up at the bruises his mommy can no longer hide
As,she runs her fingers through his hair,she,swears, she can still feel the danger in the air
So, tonite, she’ll get on a bus,leave her hometown,in hopes she can never be found
No goodbyes from her family or friends
Just a note from a kind stranger,who set the whells in motion
And this is what she wrote
(Chorus Repeat)
(Bridge)
A white gloved soldier hands a folded flag to a hero’s mother
She closes her eyes, and hold it close ,so close to her heart
She keeps pray’n, She’s just really dream’n
Then she hears the preacher whispering
(Chorus)
God wants you to know you’re never alone
Cause he’s walked in those shoes,he knows exactly what you’re going through
He’s felt all your fears. And he’s cried ,oh,how he’s cried every single tear
Everywhere,yeah,everywhere you’re going.he’s already been
(Tag)
Everywhere,yeah, everywhere you’re going, I’ve already been
