Description

Lyrics: If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break. If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break. And the water gonna come in, have no place to stay. Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan. Well all last night I sat on the levee and moan. Thinkin' 'bout my baby and my happy home. If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break. If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break. And all these people have no place to stay. Now look here mama what am I to do. Now look here mama what am I to do. I ain't got nobody to tell my troubles to.
