Terrible Flood Blues

This song is by Big Bill Broonzy.

A flood caught me in Cincinatta, my people in Louisville
Yeah, flood caught me in Cincinatta, and my people in Louisville
I axed Uncle Sam to help me, please do that if you will

I'm lookin' for my mother and my brother, I was wonderin', where can they be?
Yea, lookin' for my mother and brother, I was wonderin', where can they be?
Hey, maybe they're in Memphis, I believe I'll go and see

I started walkin' down the levee, I was lookin' high and low
Yea, started walkin' down the levee, I was lookin' high and low
If they ain't in Memphis, I wonder where did they go?

Well, Lord, have mercy, do something for me
Yea, Lord, have mercy, do something for me
Hey, I seed my baby drowndin' unbeneath a willow tree

Yes, I'm goin' to Wyoming, where the water don't get so high
Yea, I'm goin' to Wyoming, where the water don't get so high
I'm gon' go up on the highest mountain and stay there till I die
