作曲:

When it rained five days

And the skies turned dark at night

When it rained five days

And the skies turned black at night

You know there was trouble in the lowlands

And everything isn't right

When I woke up this mornin'

Couldn't even get out of my door

I woke up this mornin'

Couldn't even get out of my door

There was enough trouble to make a poor woman

Wonder where she's wanna go

They rowed a little boat

About five miles across the farm

Said they rowed a little boat

About five miles across the farm

I packed up all of my clothes

And throwed them in

And they rowed me right along

Well when it thundered and lightnin'

And the wind began to blow

Said it thundered see the lightnin'

Feel the wind beginning to blow

Not make you think about thousands of people

And they had no place to go

Then I went and stood

On a high old lonesome hill

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

I went and stood

Stood on a high old lonesome hill

I looked down with stretching my two arms

On the house Where I used to live

Back water blues that calls me

Call me to pack my clothes and go

Back water blues that calls me

Call me to pack my clothes and go

Cause my house fell down

And I can't live there no more

Somebody sombody please tell me

Why the boss let me go

Dance with sunset

And I don't like and move there no more

What a place can get my nerves settle down

I'll be moving there so in so
