The Levee - Jonny Lang

(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

Chorus

Solo

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