Life is a climb but the view is great, Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

Nashville, Tennessee is known as Music City
but you can't tell it here today
The heart of Country music is broken
and torn to pieces
As the Cumberland rages through the
historical streets
18 bodies found helpless
10 in Nashville alone

Music City is known for it's history
The Country Music Hall of Fame
has began to fill with water
and the Opry has shut down

Strangers become heroes
as they pull people into boats

Mother nature, what have we done?
Earthquakes and Tornadoes
ripped through areas already
Now the Tennessee Flood
Mother Nature, tell us what have
we have done to deserve all that's been
dealt our way?
