Don't it make you feel bad when you're tryin' to find your way home,
    A                      B      D   E
You don't know which way to go.
                                     B
If you're goin' down South, they got no work to do,

If you don't know about Chicago.

Going down, going down now,

goining down, going down now, going down.

Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good;
cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good.
When the Levee breaks, mama, you got to move.

All last night, sat on the levee and moaned;
all last night, sat on the levee and moaned.
Thinkin' 'bout my baby and my happy home.
