    Words and music by Bob Dylan

    Highwater risin', rising night and day
    All the gold and silver are being stolen away
    Big Joe Turner looking east and west from the dark room of his mind
    He made it to Kansas City, Twelfth Street and Vine
    Nothin' standing there
    Highwater everywhere

    Highwater rising the shacks are sliding down
    Folks lose their possessions, the folks are leaving town
    Reformation shook it, broke it, then she hung it on the wall
    Say you dancin' with whom they tell you to or you don't dance at all
    It's tough out there
    Highwater everywhere

    I got a craven love for blazin' speed
    I got a hopped up Mustang Ford
    Jump into the wagon, love
    Throw your panties overboard
    I can write you poems, make a strong man lose his mind
    I'm no pig without a wig, I hope you treat me kind
    Things are breakin' up out there
    Highwater everywhere

    Highwater rising, six inches above my head
    Coffins droppin' in the street like balloons made out of lead
    Water poured into Vicksburg, don't know what I'm gonna do
    Don't reach out for me, she said, can't you see I'm drowning too
    It's rough out there
    Highwater everywhere

    Well, George Lewes told the Englishman, the Italian and the Jew
    You can't open up your mind, boys, to every conceivable point of view
    They got Charles Darwin trapped out there on Highway 5
    Judge says to the High Sheriff, I want them dead or alive
    Either one, I don't care
    Highwater everywhere

    Well, the cuckoo is a pretty bird, she warbles as she flies
    I'm preachin' the word of God, I'm puttin' out your eyes
    I asked Fat Nancy for someth'n' to eat, she said take it off the shelf
    As great as you are man, you'll never be greater than yourself
    I told her I didn't really care
    Highwater everywhere

    I get up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
    Keepin' away from the women, I'm givin' them lots of room
    Thunder rollin' over Clarksdale, everythin' a-lookin' blue
    I just can't be happy, love, unless you're happy too
    It's bad out there
    Highwater everywhere
