Gulf Coast Song (click to listen)

This song came to me in the middle of the night ~ after a long day of seeing horrific images of thousands of people struggling to survive.

Gulf Coast Song
words and music by Patty Ann Smith

I sailed a boat
through a water way.
I didn't reach the shore
until the next day.

Others stayed afloat
on rubber rafts,
but couldn't share a ride
when others asked.

Carried my things
in a plastic bag.
One that wouldn't
make me lag.

Had no water
for a day or two.
Sometimes wondered
what I'd do.

Lost my mother
and my father, too.
Don't know why
I ever came through.

Now I'm here
on the other side
even though,
a part of me died.
