High Water Everywhere (Pts. 1 & 2) - Charley Patton

Well, backwater done rose all around Sumner now, drove me down the line
Backwater done rose at Sumner, drove poor Charley down the line
Lord, I'll tell the world the water
Done crept through this town

Lord, the whole round country, Lord, river has overflowed
Lord, the whole round country, man, is overflowed
(You know I can't stay here, I'll go where it's high, boy)
I would goto the hilly country, but, they got me barred

Now, look-a here now at Leland river was risin' high
Look-a here boys around Leland tell me, river was raisin' high
(Boy, it's risin' over there, yeah)
I'm gonna move over to Greenville 'fore I leave, goodbye

Look-a here the water now, Lordy,
Levee broke, rose most everywhere
The water at Greenville and Leland,
Lord, it done rose everywhere
(Boy, you can't never stay here)
I would go down to Rosedale
But, they tell me there's water there

Now, the water now, mama, done took Charley's town
Well, they tell me the water, done took Charley's town
(Boy, I'm goin' to Vicksburg)
Well, I'm goin' to Vicksburg, for that high of mine

I am goin' up that water, where lands don't never flow
Well, I'm goin' over the hill where, water, oh don't ever flow
(Boy, hit Sharkey County and everything was down in Stovall)
But, that whole county was leavin',
Over that Tallahatchie shore Boy,
(Went to Tallahatchie and got it over there)

Lord, the water done rushed all over,
Down old Jackson road
Lord, the water done raised, over the Jackson road
(Boy, it starched my clothes)
I'm goin' back to the hilly country, won't be worried no more

Backwater at Blytheville, backed up all around
Backwater at Blytheville, done took Joiner town
It was fifty families and children come to sink and drown

The water was risin' up at my friend's door
The water was risin' up at my friend's door
The man said to his women folk, "Lord, we'd better go"

The water was risin', got up in my bed
Lord, the water was rollin', got up to my bed
I thought I would take a trip, Lord, out on the big ice sled

Oh, I can hear, Lord Lord, water upon my door
You know what I mean, look-a here
I hear the ice, Lord Lord, was sinkin' down
I couldn't get no boats there, Marion City gone down

So high the water was risin' our men sinkin' down
Man, the water was risin' at places all around
Boy, they's all around
It was fifty men and children come to sink and drown

Oh, Lordy, women and grown men drown
Oh, women and children sinkin' down
Lord, have mercy
I couldn't see nobody's home and wasn't no one to be found
