Brownie's Blues/When the Levee Breaks, sung by David Head

Brownie's Blues

Water keep risin', the levee 's gonna break
Water keep risin', the levee 's gonna break
All of these people have no place to stay

Brownie, oh Brownie, what am I to do
Wake up Brownie, tell me what I should do
Ain't got no-one, to tell my troubles to

All last night, sat on the levee and moaned
All last night, sat on the levee and moaned
Thinking about my babe and my happy home

Water keep risin', the levee 's gonna break
Water keep risin', the levee 's gonna break
All of these people have no place to stay

Come down Mr Chernoff, look at the mess that we're in
Come on Chernoff, can't ya see the mess that we're in
Misery so deep, don't know where to begin

Starvin' dogs, bodies float in the street
Starvin' dogs, bodies float in the street
Dyin' of thirst, we ain't got nothing to eat

Water kept risin', levee broke today
Water kept risin', levee broke today
Big flood come, wash all the people away
                
Bush played the guitar, Went to a party or two
Yeah he played the guitar, went to a party or two
Time to get back to Crawford, there's more brush choppin' to do

He give to the rich and go out and start a war
