I’ve often played records on my podcasts that suggest reference to 1927 flood, or the threat in later years.
These two songs were featured recently:
River, Stay 'Way From My Door (Dixon, Woods)  1930?
O Lord, Send Us The Sunshine (Schoenberg, Neumayer) 1930?
Deep River Blues (Green, Handy) 1927
Muddy Water (de Rose, Richman) 1926 before the actual big flood!
