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

Don't it [E]make you feel bad when you're try[B]in' to find your way home,
You [A]don't know which way to[B] go.[D] [E]
If you're goin' down South, they got [B]no work to do,
If you [A]don't know about [B]Chicag[D]o.[E]
Goin',  goin'[A] to Chi[Em]cago,
goin' to Chicago, [A]    [Em]      sorry but I can't take you.
Going down, go[A]ing [Em]down now,
goining down, going down now, going down.[A]
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.
