Mississippi Low-Levee Blues-Barbecue Bob
Barbecue Bob, vocal and guitar in Spanish tuning, with a slide

INTRO (Spoken: Oh, it won't be long now, Bob is back in Mississippi. You remember last summer I sung you "Mississippi Heavy Water Blues"--now I'm gonna sing you "Mississippi Low-Levee".)

I'm back in Mississippi, where it always floods, thinkin' 'bout that gal that went down in this mud
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

Mmmm, mmmmm, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

I've been around here, ever since last Spring, nothing to do but shake that thing
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

We can't stand no cotton, can't raise no corn, all our houses are washed away and we ain't got no home
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

Ah, it's thunders and lightning, rain and storms, we had a hard time since this flood's been on
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

Ain't nothin' but muddy water, for miles or more, these low-levee womens ain't puttin' out no more
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

Mmmmm, mmmmm, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd, Lawd
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

I'm in Mississippi, mud all in my shoes, gal in Lou'siana told the low-levee blues
REFRAIN: Now I'm singin', this low-levee blues"

I walked down on the levee, where the water's heavy, tryin' to find what my gal went down

Lawd, Lawd, low levee's shakin', the river's all ringin', Barbecue Bob is singin'
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"

We ain't burnin' no wood, ain't usin' no coal, these lower levee women won't sell no good jellyroll
REFRAIN: Now I'm gon' sing, "Mississippi Low-Levee Blues"
