A7 -8 -8 10 -9 -8 When it rained five days E 7 7* -8 -7 7 6 6 -4 And the skies turned dark as night. B7 -7 -7* -8 -8 -8 -8 7 6 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, Wouldnt 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, Didnt 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 cant live there no more. Mmm, I cant live there no more 2x And there aint no place For a poor old girl to go.
