If I never get to heaven I don't care
I been down to the crossroads
And there ain't no devil down there
They got the whole town shakin' out in L.A.
They got the blues in Mississippi
I'm going back some day

Well I ain't gonna fuss and fight
And I ain't stayin' up all night
Worryin' 'bout the things that I can't change
Let everybody think I'm a little bit strange

'Cause I love muddy water
It's dirty but it feels alright
I love muddy water
I'm ready, I'm ready for the blues tonight
Oh yes I am

On my way to California, my old car broke down
You know what, I left it sittin' right there
And I walked on into town, I found a cheap Motel
I got a twenty dollar room
And when I woke up the next day
You know what it was four o'clock in the afternoon

Well I ain't gonna fuss and fight
And I ain't stayin' up all night
Worryin' 'bout the things that I can't change
Let everybody think I'm a little bit strange

'Cause I love muddy water
It's dirty but it feels alright
I love muddy water
And I'm ready for the blues tonight

Now why should I worry all night and day
'Cause whatever it is, it's gonna be okay
Oh yeah

Well I love muddy water
It's dirty but it feels alright
I love muddy water
I'm ready for the blues tonight

Oh, and I love muddy water
It's dirty but it feels alright
I love muddy water
I'm ready, ready for the blues tonight

Well I love muddy water
It's dirty but it feels alright
I love muddy water
I'm ready, ready for the blues tonight

Yeah, it's dirty but it feels alright
Muddy water
I'm ready, ready for the blues tonight
