With just a little bit of water
But my shoes still muddy

It was a flood and even after all this time, frank is still affected by it as many would be. Je had to leave his hometown when Katrina hit, but he still remembers where he came from.
The line implies also that just a bit of water came into his life 7 years ago and its still has a big impact on him.
Even further, we have a play on words referencing legendary blues musician Muddy Waters.
