Bill Monroe – Muddy Water lyrics

Mary grab the baby river's rising
Muddy water's taking back the land
Well this old house it won't take one more beating
Ain't no use to stay and make a stand.
The morning light showed water in the valley
Daddy's grave just went below the line
Things to save you just can't take them with you
The flood will swallow all we leave behind.
I won't be back to start all over
'Cause what I felt before is gone
Mary grab the baby river's rising
Muddy water's taking back our home.
Now the road is gone there's just one way to leave here.
I'll turn my back on what I've left below
Shifting land and broken farms around me
Muddy water's changing all I know.
It's hard to say just what I'm losing
Ain't never been so all alone
Mary grab the baby river's rising
Muddy water's taking back my home.
Well muddy water's taking back my home.
