Kenny Wayne Shepherd - Backwater Blues Lyrics




Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands at night

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't live there no more, no more

When it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
Said when it rains five days and the skies turn dark as night
There's trouble's takin' place in the lowlands tonight

I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
I woke up this mornin', can't even get out of my door
There's been so much trouble, make a poor boy
Wonder where he wanna go

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no

When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
When it thunders and lightnin' and the wind begins to blow
There's thousands of people ain't got no where to go, no

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go there no more, no more

Oh, the rain's pourin', baby, yes

I went out to the lonesome, high old lonesome hill
I went out [Incomprehensible], high old lonesome hill
I looked down on that place where I used to live

And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
And I'm backwater blues done call me to pack my things and go
'Cause my house fell down, can't go home no more, no

And I'm backwater blues, and I'm backwater blues
And I'm backwater blues, and I'm backwater blues
Yeah, my house fell down, can't go home no more
No more, no more

  2. Marcelino M M

    SRV rebirthed

  6. Antonio Di Dio

    Una scarica elettrica.......

  8. Coeur Sen

    So GOOD!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Margit Bodnár-Dobay

    Thanks for the music and guitarsolo...great song

  10. William Bunyard

    Only problem is John mayer is a Douche bag and none of his actual blues songs are that popular. Just his shitty love songs.

  11. hinowisaybye

    Stevie Ray Vaughan would disagree with you.

  12. Trinitarian

    Try listening to Rory Gallagher.

  13. donkukis

    insanely good,

  14. Guitarguilder012

    FUAAAAAAAAAAHHH.. AMAZING.

  15. jelena aleksic

    That's Noah Hunt my fav. voice ;)

    Jane Ford

    jelena aleksic Very sexy too!

  16. Raimond Diiorio

    great vocals too, who's that? Kenny's great but he don't sing...

  17. EvilSatanBabyFromHel

    agreed,def in my top 10 :)

  18. EvilSatanBabyFromHel

    ubad @ recognizing sounds lolol !

  19. Conrado Chaves

    Eric Clapton is mainstream too. Or at least he was mainstream.

  20. FishMentalist

    When I heard his voice and the switch I was like "No Way", I found out how I go.... and by that I mean I shit my pants

  21. Michael Kerr

    @GuitarLessonsLegends
    lol ma friend wanted me to, hes not very persuasive, so he wanted me to show some blinded folk the truth bout the modern music industry :)
    and once again, i would say tht there are no mainstream blues musicians, the stuff in mainstream is barely music anyway, i'm kind of glad tht the idiots who like 'popular' music dont interfere with our world of blues and rock :)

  22. Alex Visser

    It's not a fact at all, it's a complete opinion. Show me the census that relates amount of people under age 25 that enjoy blues music since Mayer's first album.

  23. Michael Kerr

    @GuitarLessonsLegends
    personally ive never heard john mayer, but ive heard SRV, JB, KWS, and even the littlest known (but one of the best) gary moore
    so the fact tht these guys are better known to a random punter like me, proves your wrong
    tbh i doubt if any blues guitarists are mainstream, BB King is really the only one i might say was mainstream
    and on a more important note, WHO GIVES A FLYING FUCK?! they are all freakin amazin musicians, better than mainstream stuff tbh

  24. BkkCheesepie

    @alvin9302 would Joe Bonamassa be a close second then?

  25. kenny hopkins

    what a great guitar player!! he ranks with the top guitar players ever!!

  26. BB Wilde

    How great is this? Epic!

  27. Irene Mandel

    Great blues song!

  28. Bev Short

    What a killer song!! I can't wait to see these guys at DPAC!!

  29. Frédéric Puglisi

    outstanding piano intro!!! killer song!

  30. Robin Mccann

    I saw kenny in jan of 2000 in atlanta at the tabernackle. outstanding! they just get better and better
