"High Water (For Charley Patton)" is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his 31st studio album "Love and Theft" in 2001. The song draws its title from the Charley Patton song "High Water Everywhere", and is meant as a tribute to that bluesman. It is one of many songs based on the 1927 Louisiana flood. Other songs about the event include Memphis Minnie's "When the Levee Breaks" (also recorded by Dylan on his Modern Times album as "The Levee's Gonna Break"), and Randy Newman's "Louisiana 1927". "The cuckoo is a pretty birdShe warbles as she flies." Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom" with the line:

  • "High Water (For Charley Patton)" es una canción del músico estadounidense Bob Dylan publicada en su trigésimo primer álbum de estudio, "Love and Theft", en 2001. La canción toma su título del tema de Charley Patton "High Water Rising", basada, al igual que otras canciones de la cultura folk americana, en la inundación que tuvo lugar en Luisiana en 1927. Otras canciones que relatan la catástrofe son "When the Levee Breaks", de Memphis Minnie (posteriormente grabada por Led Zeppelin e incluso el propio Bob Dylan para su álbum Modern Times) y "Louisiana 1927", de Randy Newman. "High Water (For Charley Patton)" toma prestados versos de dos canciones clásicas en los últimos versos. La primera, la tradicional "The Cuckoo", es referida en la canción en el verso: "The cuckoo is a pretty bird / She warbles as she flies." Lo que puede traducirse por: "El cuco es un pájaro precioso / Gorjea mientras vuela." El otro tema referido en la canción es "Dust My Broom", de Robert Johnson, con la línea: "I'm getting up in the morning / I believe I'll dust my broom." Lo cual puede traducirse al español como: "Me levanto por la mañana / A lo mejor le quito el polvo a mi escoba." (es)

Other songs about the event include Memphis Minnie's "When the Levee Breaks" (also recorded by Dylan on his Modern Times album as "The Levee's Gonna Break"), and Randy Newman's "Louisiana 1927". The song directly quotes three classic American songs in the last two verses, first the traditional ballad "The Cuckoo" with the line: "The cuckoo is a pretty birdShe warbles as she flies." Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom" with the line: "I'm getting up in the morning I believe I'll dust my broom." Charlie Pattons " Shake it and break it" with the line: "You can shake it, you can break it,you can hang it on the wall." Bob's amended version of this line is "Bertha Mason shook it – broke it, then she hung it on a wall." Attwood also notes that the song both musically and lyrically has little point of contact with the original Patton work. Larry Campbell played the banjo "expertly" on the cut. Regularly part of Dylan's live performances since October 2001, a concert version of the song from August 2003 is included in The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 – Tell Tale Signs (2008). (en)
