You Left the Water Running
Otis Redding Lyrics


You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine

You turned out the light of love
You left with another guy
You turned off all your love for me
But you forgot to turn off the cry
You forgot to turn off the cry

You pulled the shades away down low
And disconnected the telephone
But these tears a running from my eyes
I can't turn them off and on
No, I can't turn them off and on

You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine

You locked the door and left me outside
And then you threw the key away
But baby, you'll regret, baby you'll be upset
When you get your water bill to pay
When you get your water bill to pay

You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine

You've been gone fifty three years. It still makes me cry. But then I listen to you sing and my spirits are lifted. Thank you Otis Redding!

I've never heard this version till 4:09 minutes ago... Thank you thank you thank you. Otis is so powerful, I can't even *listen* to anyone else after him. It's either more Otis, or hang it up and go to bed.

Frank Zgrabik

Me too in Aug 2020. I thought I had heard everything before. May be not.

No fancy computer equipment. Just pure talent. I miss it.

i still cry for you Otis - you left the water running brother

Marcus Matthews

the best part about this song is that he just busted it out on the way out of the studio, its so raw, noone has had or will have soul like otis redding.
