lyrics

If it keeps on rainin’
Levees going to break

When the Levee Breaks
by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie

If it keeps on rainin’
Levee’s going to break

If it keeps on rainin’
levees going to break
And when the levee breaks
I’ll have no place to stay

Cryin’ won’t help ya
Prayin wont do ya no good

Cryin’ won’t help ya
Prayin’ won’t do ya no good
And when the levee breaks
Mama you got to move

All last night
I sat on the levee and moaned
All last night
I sat in the levee and moaned
Thinkin’ about my baby and
My happy home
