In this video from Farm Aid 25, Willie Nelson and his son, Lukas Nelson, perform a stunning rendition of "Texas Flood", the classic hit by Stevie Ray Vaughan. The performance is raw and gritty, showing the exceptional talent of both Willie and Lukas. 

"Texas Flood", also known as "Stormin' in Texas" or "Flood Down in Texas", is a blues song originallly recorded by Larry Davis in 1958. But the song gained it's modern popularity in 1983, when Stevie Ray took the song and made it a huge hit on his debut album "Texas Flood". With a unique voice and talent with a guitar, Stevie Ray made a name for himself with the song. It was later made Rolling Stone's 66th Greatest Guitar Song

Lukas' talent with a guitar is quite evident as he performs the classic hit exceptionally well with his father. The crowd quietly listens and clearly enjoys the song as much as Willie and Lukas enjoyed performing it. Cheers can be heard through the entire performance and it's definitely not one to be missed

Check out Willie and Lukas performing, then the classic version by Stevie Ray. 

LYRICS BELOW

Well it's floodin' down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
Well it's floodin' down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down

And I've been tryin' to call my baby
Lord and I can't get a single sound

Well dark clouds are rollin' in
Man I'm standin' out in the rain
Well dark clouds are rollin' in
Man I'm standin' out in the rain

Yeah flood water keep a rollin'
Man it's about to drive poor me insane

Well I'm leavin' you baby
Lord and I'm goin' back home to stay
Well I'm leavin' you baby
Lord and I'm goin' back home to stay

Well back home there're no floods or tornadoes
Baby the sun shines every day
