Lyrics

When the Levee Breaks

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' break
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' break
If the Levee Breaks We’ll have no place to stay

All last night I sat on the levee and moaned
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Thinkin about my baby and my unhappy home (Oh Well)

Workin on the levee all night and all day
Just Trying to keep the river away
we all know if the levee don't hold it'll
carry all our reasons away

Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do no good
cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do no good
When the levee breaks it won't be understood

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' break
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' break
When the Levee Breaks We’ll have no place to stay
