Blues Traveler – When The Levee Breaks lyrics

Memphis minnie

If it keeps on raining, the levee's going to break,
If it keeps on raining, the levee's going to break,
When the levee breaks I'll have no place to stay.

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Lord, mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home

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 go no work to do,
If you don't know about 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' 'bout me baby and my happy home.
Going, goin' to chicago,
Goin' to chicago,
Sorry but I can't take you.
Going down, going down now, going down.
