Kentucky Downpour


Written by Levon Helm & The Band, Marty Grebb.
Album: Jubilation
The lyrics are copyrighted. Please do not copy or redistribute.


Night wheels rollin'
On a cold black road
Got an uneasy feelin'
Haulin' a heavy load
Ease up on the hammer
It's getting pretty thick
It's startin' to rain
And it's gonna get slick
Whoa Kentucky downpour
It's coming down harder
Than we ever bargained for

Storm clouds blowin'
Through the cotton fields
Black ice is forming
Underneath my wheels
Drivin' back home
This ain't no time for stormin'
You can't make no time
When all the rain starts pourin'
Whoa Kentucky downpour
It's coming down harder
Than we ever bargained for
Whoa Kentucky cloudburst
My luck's run out
Maybe went from bad to worse
Thunder is crashin'
And lightnin' is flashin'
We pray for peaceful times
Can a voice be heard
Above the din
When the winds are high

[Garth bridge]

Still water runs deep
Through the fathom blue
The rain clouds pour down
When you don't want 'em to
Ridin' and losin' track
Of when I comin' back
Or where I'm comin' from
Or if I'm on the run
Whoa Kentucky downpour
It's coming down harder
Than we ever bargained for
Whoa Kentucky cloudburst
My luck's run out
Maybe went from bad to worse
Whoa Kentucky downpour
It's comin' down harder
Than we ever bargained for
Whoa Kentucky cloudburst
Maybe my luck's run out
Maybe went from bad to worse
Whoa
Whoa
