the old quicksand.
I guess he didn't know that the water was deeper
Than the place he'd once before been.
Another stream had joined the Big Muddy
'Bout
through that door
No little lady
You two are sailing way too close
By the muddy waters"
Ooh yeah, muddy waters
She spoke up to me
Like a thousand times
and deep and brown 
She's crossing muddy waters 

Baby's crying and the daylight's gone 
That big oak tree is groaning 
In a rush of wind and river
Why do people believe in some old sign? [Repeat: x2]
To hear a hoot owl holler, someone is surely dyin'

Some will break a mirror, cry bad luck
waters we’re falling

It is not clear why we choose the fire pathway
Where we end is not the way that we had planned
All the spirits gather 'round like
I knew she was goin'
She was clean outta sight

Chrorus
That muddy water keeps on rollin'
Like the buffalo, she keeps movin' on
From that bayou town
My baby's gone and I don't know why 
She let out this morning 
Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky 
Left me without warning 
Sooner than the dogs
the water

You should know
Babe
At least pretend you did know why
It's not like you watch so go on take a drink
Really
Babe

Do you like the way the water
Somebody where are you tonight?

Down in that deep muddy river (so long ago)
Blood is much thicker than water (the angels know)
She hears a voice sweetly
Like a ship without the ocean
Like a road without a wheel
Like a sun without the morning
People, that's the way I feel

But I'll be going home in
around
And I am in no hurry to figure it out
We are just like oceans running aground in search of water
In search of water

We are just these people
of men"

Well, I like fishin',

That's why it caught my ear

The Lord knew how to get to me

And what I'd need to hear


Keep your lure in the water, don't
the fact that both of us was wrong
Both of us was wrong

You're talking right to me
But you really ain't saying a thang
You're pouring muddy water on me
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
wife."

He kissed her and hugged her and turned her around,
Then pushed her in deep waters where he knew that she would drown.

He got on his pony and away
(Don't trouble the water)
I won't (leave it alone)
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
(Still water run deep, yes it do)
I know that
Now I'm in such distress,
My song is blue, and so are you,
That's why I'm in such a mess.

It 's been so long.
Out in the moonlight,
Beside
(Don't trouble the water)
I won't (leave it alone)
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
(Still water run deep, yes it do)
I know that
as a beggar and never be your wife." 

He hugged her and kissed her and turned her around,
Then pushed her in deep waters where he knew that she would drown.
(Don't trouble the water)
I won't (leave it alone)
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
(Still water run deep, yes it do)
I know that
On the Mississippi Mud.

And what a dance do they do
Lordy, how I'm tellin' you
Why, they don't need no band
They keep time by clappin their hand.

Just
much care
I guess I was pretty well satisfied
Had my little lady right by my side
Takin' it easy, yeah still waitin'
Worm been gone off-a that hook
I was pretty well satisfied
Had my little lady right by my side
Takin' it easy, yeah still waitin'
Worm been gone off-a that hook for a couple
unity, it's really never enough
People in the community don't band together enough
We all aware that it sucks, the hood resembles a pigsty
Even your
much care
I guess I was pretty well satisfied
Had my little lady right by my side
Takin' it easy, yeah still waitin'
Worm been gone off-a that hook
