When the Levee Breaks – Led Zeppelin

“When the Levee Breaks” Lyrics

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
Lord 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’t 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 don’t know about 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’ ’bout my baby and my happy home

Going, 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 d-d-d-d-down
Woo, woo
