Granny worries 'change gonna come' with Mississippi flood

1927 flood
"Gordon, there in Vidalia just called, Granny and said he wouldn't be coming here this weekend for family dinner cause the water is a worry."  My son Fred told me about his brother this morning there, and well I got some advice for folks right now, and it's all about the water and paying attention.

You see my mama told me bout that 1927 flood, cause some of her family they were hurt real bad.  All along the Mississippi the waters they rose up, and people they got scared.  And the President Coolidge he done nothing to help, and then the feller Hoover he didn't either.  But I think Obama will, cause he is family and cares about us folks. 

But you never know when those politicians get their nose in the air and act all high and mighty.

So here's this Granny's advice.  This is serious business, and I got no time to be foolin' with you.  You folks pay attention and don't think you can ride things out just because you  think you can.   If government folks tell you to leave, well you do it.  And get all prepared right now, cause no one knows for sure how bad those waters are going to get when the government says there is going to be a lot of flooding from Memphis, Tennessee to the poke salad patches of Louisiana.  The problem is folks sometimes don't trust each other, and here's a time we have to do that--and put our trust in the man upstairs as well, cause a change is gonna come, I'm afraid; and I want all you folks to be safe.
