When it rained five days

And the skies turned dark as night.

There was trou-ble tak-ing place
                      E     
7   7  7-6*  6   6    6
In the low-lands at night.

I woke up in the morning,
Wouldn’t even get out of my door. 2x
Enough trouble to make a poor girl
Wonder where she gonna go.

They rowed a little boat,
About five miles ‘cross the farm 2x
I packed up all my clothing,
Throwed it in and they rowed me along.

It thundered and it lightened,
And the winds began to blow. 2x
There was a thousand women,
Didn’t have no place to go.

I went out to the lonesome,
High old lonesome hill 2x
I looked down on the old house, 
Where I used to live.

Backwater blues have caused me to
Pack up my things and go. 2x
‘Cause my house fell down
And I can’t live there no more.

Mmm, I can’t live there no more 2x
And there ain’t no place
For a poor old girl to go.
