  • Just as Sure

    Water finds its own level where it settles.
    A fool makes decisions with heads or tails.
    These are things I remember my daddy
    would always say. You know, it's too bad he
    didn't get that through my brother Willie's
    head. That fool found his level in the lowest places.
    Through all the bad, Daddy said still he
    was his son. Couldn't deny they shared faces.

    We buried Daddy in '53. They
    finished the dam, backed up the Oconee
    that year to make power. They made a lake,
    changed the town. Covered farms, drowned a tree
    or two. They bought all the land on that new shore.
    And you know, things gon keep changing as sure
    as fools make decisions with head or tails
    and water finds its own level where it settles.
