The Levee Lyrics

    (kevin bowe)

    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



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