                                    If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break;
 AEm
 If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break.
 AEm
 When the levee breaks I'll have no place to stay.
 AEmAEmA
            Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan; 
 EmA
 Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan. 
 Em
 It's got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home.
 A
Ah, well, oh well, oh well.

 EB
Don't it make you feel bad when you're tryin' to find your way home,
 ABDE
You don't know which way to go.  
 B
If you're goin' down South, they got no work to do,
 ABDE
If you don't know about Chicago. 
 AEm
Goin',  goin' to Chicago,
 AEm
goin' to Chicago,           sorry but I can't take you.
 AEm
Going down, going down now,
 A
goining down, going down now, going down. 
Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good;
cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good.
When the Levee breaks, mama, you got to move.
All last night, sat on the levee and moaned;
all last night, sat on the levee and moaned.
Thinkin' 'bout my baby and my happy home.
