John Hiatt - Crossing Muddy Waters lyrics

Baby's gone and I don't know why
She let out this morning
Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky
She left me without warning
Sooner than the dogs could bark
Faster than the sun rose
Down to the banks on an old mule car
She took a flat boat ‘cross the shallows

CHORUS:
Left me in my tears to drown
She left a baby daughter
Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She's crossing muddy waters

Tobacco standing in my fields
Be rotten come November
And bitter heart will not reveal
A spring that love remembers
When that sweet brown girl of mine
Hair black as a raven
We broke the bread and drank the wine
From a jug that she'd been saving

CHORUS

Baby's crying and the daylight's gone
That big oak tree is groaning
In a rush of wind and a river of song
I can hear my true love moaning
Crying for her baby child
Oh crying for her husband
Crying for that river's wild
To take her from her loved ones

CHORUS

Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She's crossing muddy waters
