While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    High Water Everywhere

    The Mississippi Delta knows what high water means. The rest of the nation is now discovering what it means, too. Here is the poetry that goes with Highwater - For Charlie Patton by this year’s Nobel Laureate for Literature:

    Highwater risin', rising night and day

    All the gold and silver are being stolen away

    Big Joe Turner looking east and west from the dark room of his mind

    He made it to Kansas City, Twelfth Street and Vine

    Nothin' standing there

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    Highwater rising the shacks are sliding down

    Folks lose their possessions, the folks are leaving town

    Reformation shook it, broke it, then she hung it on the wall

    Say you dance with whom they tell you to or you don't dance at all

    It's tough out there

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    I got a cravin' love for blazin' speed

    I got a hopped up Mustang Ford

    Jump into the wagon, love

    Throw your panties overboard

    I can write you poems, make a strong man lose his mind

    I'm no pig without a wig, I hope you treat me kind

    Things are breakin' up out there

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    Highwater rising, six inches above my head

    Coffin's dropping in the street like balloons made out of lead

    Water poured into Vicksburg, don't know what I'm gonna do

    Don't reach out for me, she said, can't you see I'm drowning too

    It's rough out there

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    Well, George Lewis told the Englishman, the Italian and the Jew

    You can't open up your mind, boys, to every conceivable point of view

    They got Charles Darwin trapped out there on Highway 5

    Judge says to the high sheriff, I want him dead or alive

    Either one, I don't care

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    Well, the cuckoo is a pretty bird, she warbles as she flies

    I'm preachin' the word of God, I'm puttin' out your eyes

    I asked Fat Nancy for someth'n' to eat, she said take it off the shelf

    As great as you are man, you'll never be greater than yourself

    I told her I didn't really care

    Highwater everywhere

    *

    I get up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom

    Keepin' away from the women, I'm givin' them lots of room

    Thunder rollin' over Clarksdale, everythin' a lookin' blue

    I just can't be happy, love, unless you're happy too

    It's bad out there

    Highwater everywhere
