Jimmy Witherspoon – Back Water Blues lyrics

Well, it rained five days
And the skies turned dark as night
Well, it rained five days
And the skies turned dark as night
And trouble's takin' place in the lowland that night

Well, it was thunderin', it was lightnin'
And the wind began to blow
Well, it was thunderin', it was lightnin'
And the wind began to blow
Yes, in blues and trouble
Makes a poor girl wonder where she wants to go

Yes, they rolled a little ball
About five miles across the park
Yes, they rolled a little ball
About five miles across the park
Yes, I packed all my clothes
Then they rolled me all along

Yes, I wait and I stood
Upon some high old lonesome hill
Well, I wait and I stood
Upon some high old lonesome hill
Then I looked down on that old shack
That old shack where I used to live
