Walking alone in the rain
Water in my shoes
All I can feel is this pain in my heart
And these Muddy Water Blues

River weep for me
Got nothing left
the southwest horizon,
With the scream of an eagle on the fly,
I will walk alone by the black muddy river,
And listen to the ripples as they moan,
I will walk
What'd you do, son?

I washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, oh, but they didn't come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me, yeah
But I must
Written by Joe Babcock
Recorded by Hank Snow

I was born in Macon Georgia they kept my dad in the Macon jail
Dad said son if you keep your hands
with the Grecian Hawaiian five in the water
Let's roll in the water,swimming in the water
It's all gona clear up someday

Dirty water
Dirty water
hair skippin in the Mississippi dew



Oh the river run wide, run deep, run muddy
The river run long after I am gone
With the steamboat wheeling
washed my hands in muddy water
Washed my hands, but they didn't come clean
Tried to do what my daddy told me
But I must have washed my hands in a muddy
the rubble
I'm dazed, seeing double
And I'm truly mystified

My new home is a shell-hole filled
With tears and muddy water
And bits of broken heart
All
As I stumble through the rubble
I'm dazed, seeing double
And I'm truly mystified

My new home is a shell-hole filled
With tears and muddy water
And bits
the key

Well I washed off my hands in muddy water
I washed off my hands, but they didn't come clean
I tried to do like my daddy told me
I must have washed
charge from now on."
And we just made it out of the Big Muddy
With the captain dead and gone.

We stripped and dived and found his body
Stuck in
walking through that door
Your friends may call you
You won't be hanging 'round no more
By the muddy waters"
OOh yeah, muddy waters
Mama was shouting
Said:
the rubble, I'm dazed and seein' double 
And I'm truly mystified

[Chorus:]
My new home is a shell-hole
Filled with tears and muddy water
And bits
hair skippin in the Mississippi dew



Oh the river run wide, run deep, run muddy
The river run long after I am gone
With the steamboat wheeling
I was born down in the bottoms of the flat black Delta land
I grew up picking cotton in the Mississippi sand
My mama said son take that girl and go
played
Stepchild when you were born
Your right foot was turned left with your left
And mercy had a way of taking off and leaving you by yourself
the rubble
I'm dazed, seeing double
And I'm truly mystified

My new home is a shell-hole filled
With tears and muddy water
And bits of broken heart
All
the rubble
I'm dazed, seeing double
And I'm truly mystified

My new home is a shell hole filled
With tears and muddy water
And bits of broken heart
All
see God everywhere
Like a sad old melody that cheers you up, it sets you free
That's how Memphis lives in me

There comes a time when muddy waters
here 
And I'm the hoochie-coochie man 
Everybody knows I'm here 

[Additional 2nd verse from original 1954 Muddy Waters take:]

I got a black cat
washed my hands in muddy water washed my hands but they didn't come clean
Tried to do like daddy told me but I must have washed my hands in a muddy stream
on the mountains
Bless each tear and this dirt I was born in (run)
We don't run, we don't run

Take me to the banks of your muddy water
Where the flesh and blood
never can forget
And I'm here with my baby and were driving downtown
Thinks I've never been here, wants to show me around

But he don't know nothing
the rubble
I'm dazed, seeing double
And I'm truly mystified

My new home is a shell hole filled
With tears and muddy water
And bits of broken heart
All
on the mountains
Bless each tear and this dirt I was born in (run)
We don't run, we don't run

Take me to the banks of your muddy water
Where the flesh and blood
