Now what you hear is not a test
There's a common joke about the people in Tornado Alley who continue to rebuild right in the tornado path. (One comedian has stated that "your houses have wheels...drive somewhere else!")

However, some people choose not to rebuild. Here's the opening lyrics of Phil Rosenthal's song "Muddy Water":

Mary grab the baby river's rising
Muddy water's taking back the land
Well this old house it won't take one more beating
Ain't no use to stay and make a stand.


And the chorus:

I won't be back to start all over
'Cause what I felt before is gone
Mary grab the baby river's rising
Muddy water's taking back our home.


Phil recorded this song while he was a member of the
Seldom Scene. I heard this original version over the weekend on the Music Choice Bluegrass channel. I'm much more familiar with Johnny Cash's cover version, which appears on his album Silver.

Phil has long since left the Seldom Scene. However, the Seldom Scene is still going strong, and still releases albums on Sugar Hill Records. For people with a certain musical background, this tidbit can cause a bit of confusion.
