If it keeps on raining, levee’s going to break
If it keeps on raining, levee’s going to break
And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay

Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan
Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan
Thinking about my baby and my happy home

If it keeps on raining, levee’s going to break
If it keeps on raining, levee’s going to break
And all these people have no place to stay

Now look here mama what am I to do?
Now look here mama what am I to do?
I ain’t got nobody to tell my troubles to

I works on the levee mama both night and day
I works on the levee mama both night and day
I ain’t got nobody, keep the water away

Oh crying won’t help you, praying won’t do no good
Oh crying won’t help you, praying won’t do no good
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to lose

I works on the levee, mama both night and day
I works on the levee, mama both night and day
I works so hard, to keep the water away

I had a woman, she wouldn’t do for me
I had a woman, she wouldn’t do for me
I’m going back to my used to be

It’s a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
It’s a mean old levee, cause me to weep and moan
Gonna leave my baby, and my happy home
