-7 -7* -8 -8 -8 -8 7 6
There was trou-ble tak-ing place
E
7 7 7-6* 6 6 6
In the low-lands at night.

I woke up in the morning,
Wouldn�t even get out of my door. 2x
Enough trouble to make a poor girl
Wonder where she gonna go.

They rowed a little boat,
About five miles �cross the farm 2x
I packed up all my clothing,
Throwed it in and they rowed me along.

It thundered and it lightened,
And the winds began to blow. 2x
There was a thousand women,
Didn�t have no place to go.

I went out to the lonesome,
High old lonesome hill 2x
I looked down on the old house,
Where I used to live.

Backwater blues have caused me to
Pack up my things and go. 2x
�Cause my house fell down
And I can�t live there no more.

Mmm, I can�t live there no more 2x
And there ain�t no place
For a poor old girl to go.
