Lang, Jonny - The Levee Lyrics




I have been to Memphis but I couldn't find no peace
My soul is feeling restless and I need some relief
I'm heading for the Delta, see what I can find
I know the river holds the answers that'll ease my worried mind

Take me down to the levee where the women sing
Lay me down like an angel with a broken wing
Take me down to the levee where the river flows
Gon' throw my blues off the levee and let them go

Well, I have been to Natchez, been down to Baton Rouge
But the Delta keeps on callin' me no matter what I do

[Chorus]

[Solo]

I'm drivin' through the darkness, down Highway 61
Heading for the crossroads like the ones before me done
