Katrina Blues Reggie Miles © 2005

I'm in Mississippi
Mud all in my shoes
My gal's in Louisiana
Got them high water blues

And I got nuthin' left to lose
I got them high water blues

Hard times here
My house has washed away
I'm sittin' here prayin'
For a sunny day

And now I'm cryin' every day
My house has washed away

That river levee
She's long and tall
Katrina came to visit
She made that levee fall

And now there's nuthin' left at all
She made that levee fall

The mayor said
Move to higher ground
But there ain't no hills
For miles around

There ain't no hills to be found
In this old Delta town

Sittin' here moanin'
'Bout this hurricane
Times like these
'Ll drive a man insane

And it's a cryin' shame
About that hurricane
Katrina Katrina
You've got to go
Your sister Rita's
Knockin' on my door

And now you've got to go
Cause Rita's at my front door

  • Title: Katrina Blues
  • Artist: Reggie Miles
  • Duration: 00:05:59
  • Played: 89
  • Date Recorded: Feb 2nd, 2008

I was invited to play at a small festival in West Virginia on the weekend that Katrina hit New Orleans. I began writing this song that very weekend.

I recorded this one playing bottleneck style slide, in an open tuned minor key, with my late 1920s Knutsen Hawaiian guitar. I'm the only player that I know of whose approach is playing bottleneck slide style using a square neck guitar.
