Lyrics — When The Levee Breaks

Probably should follow Creedence’s Who’ll Stop The Rain?

If it keeps on rainin’
Levee’s goin’ to break
If it keeps on rainin’
Levee’s goin’ to break
When the levee breaks
I’ll have no place to stay
 
Mean old levee
Taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee
Taught me to weep and moan
It’s got what it takes
To make a mountain man leave his home
Oh well, oh well, oh well
 
Don’t it make you feel bad
When you’re tryin’ to find your way home
You don’t know which way to go?
If you’re goin’ down South
They got no work to do
If you’re going down to Chicago
 
Cryin’ won’t help you
Prayin’ won’t do you no good
Now, cryin’ won’t help you
Prayin’ won’t do you no good
When the levee breaks
Mama, you got to move
 
All last night
Sat on the levee and moaned
All last night
Sat on the levee and moaned
Thinkin’ about my baby
And my happy home
 
Going
I’m going to Chicago
Going to Chicago
Sorry but I can’t take you
 
Going down
Going down now
Going down
Going down now
Going down
Going down
Going down, going down
