Bob Dylan The Levee's Gonna Break Lyrics


(Bob Dylan) If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break Everybody saying this is a day only the Lord could make Well, I worked on the levee, Mama, both night and day I worked on the levee, Mama, both night and day I got to the river and I threw my clothes away I paid my time and now I'm good as new, I paid my time and now I'm as good as new. They can't take me back unless I want 'em to If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break Some of these people gonna strip you of all they can take I can't stop here I ain't ready to unload I can't stop here I ain't ready to unload Riches and salvation can be waiting behind the next bend in the road I picked you up from the gutter and this is the thanks I get I picked you up from the gutter and this is the thanks I get You say you want me to quit ya, I told ya, 'No, not just yet.' Well, I look in your eyes, I see nobody other than me I look in your eyes, I see nobody other t
han me I see all that I am and all I hope to be If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break Some of these people don't know which road to take When I'm with you, I forget I was ever blue When I'm with you, I forget I was ever blue Without you there's no meaning in anything I do Some people on the road carryin' everything that they own Some people on the road carryin' everything they own Some people got barely enough skin to cover their bones Put on your cat clothes, mama, put on your evening dress Put on your cat clothes, mama, put on your evening dress Few more years of hard work, then there'll be a 1,000 years of happiness If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break I tried to get you to love me, but I won't repeat that mistake If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break Plenty of cheap stuff out there and still around that you take I woke up this morning, butter
and eggs in my bed I woke up this morning, butter and eggs in my bed I ain't got enough room to even raise my head. Come back, baby, say we never more will part Come back, baby, say we never more will part Don't be a stranger with no brain or heart If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break If it keep on rainin', the levee gonna break Some people still sleepin', some people are wide awake
