There's some trouble taking place in the lowlands at night

I woke up this morning, couldn't even get out of my door
Woke up this morning, couldn't even get out of my door
Sometimes there's so much trouble, a poor girl don't know where to go

They rowed a little boat about five miles across the farm
They rowed a little boat about five miles across the farm
I packed up all my clothes and they rowed me right along

It thunders and lightnings and the wind begins to blow
It thunders and lightnings and the wind begins to blow
There's about a thousand people there, and they ain't got nowhere to go

I went up and stood on a high and lonesome hill
I went up and stood on a high and lonesome hill
I looked down below me on the house I used to live

That's how the blues done caused me to pack up my things and go
Blues done caused me to pack up my things and go
My poor house is gone, I can't live there no more
My poor house is gone, I can't live there no more
My poor house is gone, I can't live there no more
