Lyrics

  1. 1. The wise man built his house upon the rock,
    The wise man built his house upon the rock,
    The wise man built his house upon the rock,
    And the rains came tumbling down.
  2. 2. The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    And the house on the rock stood still.
  3. 3. The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
    The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
    The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
    And the rains came tumbling down.
  4. 4. The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    The rains came down, and the floods came up,
    And the house on the sand washed away.
  5. Words and music: Southern folk song
