​Backwater Blues

This song is by Kenny Wayne Shepherd and appears on the album How I Go (2011).

Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands at night

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't live there no more, no more

When it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands tonight

I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
There's been so much trouble, make a poor boy
Wonder where he wanna go

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no

When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
There's thousands of people ain't got no where to go, no

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no more

Oh, the rain's pourin', baby, yes

I went out to the lonesome, high old lonesome hill
I went out [Incomprehensible], high old lonesome hill
I looked down on that place where I used to live

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go home no more, no

And I'm backwater blues, and I'm backwater blues
And I'm backwater blues, and I'm backwater blues
Yeah, my house fell down, can't go home no more
No more, no more
