If there’s any song other than Stephen Foster’s that anybody knows about the Suwannee, it’s usually this one, which is a call to action:
The water table’s going down, cricks are running dry….
They say we need more power, there’s more rain in the sky….
But where’s that water going, and who says it’s so..??..
Somebody’s got the answers that we’d all like to know..!!..
