Music & Lyrics by : Leslie Philips, T. Bone Burnette
Originally performed by Leslie Philips

When the water's too high
When the water's too high
I will carry you
I will carry you

When the streets are too hot
When the streets are too hot
I will carry you
I will carry you

Chorus
I will carry you
I will carry you
When the water's too high
I will carry you

[ Instrumental-Bridge ]

When the night is too black
When the night is too black
I will carry you
I will carry you

When the water's too high
When the water's too high
I will carry you
I will carry you

Chorus
