If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break
If it keeps on raining, levee's going to break
When the levee breaks I've got no place to stay

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home

All last night sat on the levee and moaned
All last night sat on the levee and moaned
Thinking about my baby and my happy home

Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good
When the levee breaks, you got to move

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
