"Mississippi Heavy Water Blues" as written by and Robert Pete Williams....
I was walking down the Levee with my head hanging low,
Looking for my sweet mama but she ain't here no more,
Thats why Im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Lord, Lord, Lord, Im so blue, my house got washed away,
And im crying "how long for another pay day",
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Im sitting here looking, at all of this mud,
And my girl got washed away in that Mississippi flood,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

I hope she come back, some day kind and true,
Ain't no one satisfy her like her sweet papa do,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

I think I heard a moan, on the Arkansas side,
Crying how long before sweet mama arrive,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Im in Mississippi, with mud all in my shoes,
My girl in louisiana with those high water blues,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Spoken: Lord send me a sweet mama

Got plenty of muddy water, dont need no water cold,
I need some sweet mama to send me daddy love,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Nothing but muddy water, as far as I could see,
I need some sweet mama, come shake that thing with me,
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Listen here you men, one more thing I'd like to say,
Ain't no womens out here, for they all got washed away
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.

Lord, Lord, Lord,
Mississippi shakin',
Louisiana sinkin',
The whole towns a shrinkin',
Robert Hicks is Singin',
Thats why im crying Mississippi heavy water blues.
