The Levee Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I have been down to Memphis
I couldn't find no peace
Well my soul is feeling restless
Like I need some relief

Heading for the desert
See what I can find
I know the river holds the answers
To the questions in my 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

I have been down at Natchez
Down to Baton Rouge
You see the river keep on callin' me
No matter what I do
No matter what I do

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

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

I want you to 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
Let them go
