The floods

CHORUS
Gm
It's the poorest people
Cm
In the valleys and the flood plains
Gm
It's the poorest people
Cm
Whose lives get washed away
Dm                                       Gm
Build where the others won't build

VERSE
Cm                                       Gm
You've got to blame urban planning
Cm                            Gm
Not lack of understanding
Cm
They're building everywhere
Dm                               F
In the places that always flood

While the evacuated ask why
The planners stay high and dry
Nobody in the know
Would willingly live down there

CHORUS

VERSE
In the same place it happened before
And you can be sure it will happen again
Memories dry out
Along with the water

And when they come back with their will
And quietly rebuild
Bigger
And the next time will be worse

CHORUS
