      Charley Patton - High Water Everywhere Pt. 2 Música y Letra

      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
