When the Levee Breaks – Led Zeppelin

.
“If it keeps on rainin’
Levee’s goin’ to break
If it keeps on rainin’
Levee’s goin’ to break
When the levee breaks
I’ll have no place to stay.
.
“Mean old levee
Taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee
Taught me to weep and moan
.
“It’s got what it takes
To make a mountain man leave his home.
Oh well, oh well, oh well
.
“Don’ it make you feel bad
When you’re tryin’ to find your way home
You don’t know which way to go?
If you’re goin’ down South
They got no work to do
If you’re going down to Chicago
.
“Cryin’ won’t help you
Prayin’ won’t do you no good
Now, 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’ about my baby
And my happy home
.
“Going, I’m going to Chicago
Going to Chicago
Sorry but I can’t take you
.
“Going down, going down now
Going down, going down now
Going down, going down
Going down, going down
.
“Going down, going down now
Going down, going down now
Going down, going down now
Going down, going down
Down, down, down, down.”
.
