Song Meaning
Verse 1
Born and left by the trunk of a willow tree
Half near death when the preacher came on me
As the shepherd finds lost sheep I've been lost since before my God knew me
Verse 2
Boy to man, not once was finding peace Some give their life for scraps
I'd take yours for a feast I grew strong, I rose above myself
And anybody in my way, they'd never live to tell
Verse 3
And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold
Verse 4
Met my Katherine singing in the hills
Simple notes but at once my heart was filled as the wolf finds lost sheep
On that hillside, Katherine, she found me
Verse 5
And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold
Verse 6
The shattered storm masks The crashing of the waves
Bodies shift and shake Hold our heads and pray 'til daylight breaks
Verse 7
Wade in the water Wade in the water children Wade in the water
I've been lost since before my God knew me
Verse 8
The sun sets in the mountains and the moon comes from the east
I slept beside my Katherine but the devil never sleeps
She took what little I had, left the blade deep in my side
By the trunk of the willow tree is where my old grave lies
Verse 9
And I said oh, It's what you don't know gonna' get you
What you're given, it ain't always what you're sold
