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, 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
