Nothing but the Water (II) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I have tried to find my way
To make it through to a better day
I have cried a mighty song
But in the morning everything was gone
Verse 2
So come on water, sweet water, wash me down
So come on water, sweet water, wash me down
Verse 3
I have tried so many times
To put out the devil's fire
But every time I sit down to pray
The devil's charm pulls me away
Verse 4
So come on water, sweet water, wash me down
Come on water, sweet water, wash me down
Verse 5
Up in heaven, they know the rule
You've got to get down to the bathing pool
Everybody, you've got to get in line
Down at the river, we're doing fine
Verse 6
With the water, sweet water, wash me down
Come on water, sweet water, wash me down
Verse 7
Now I'm ready, it's my time
If I give a nickel, I might get a dime
Only the water can help me now
I'll find glory somewhere, somehow
Verse 8
With the water, sweet water, wash me down
Come on water, sweet water, wash me down
Verse 9
Tried my hand at the Bible
Tried my hand at prayer
But now nothing but the water
Is gonna bring my soul to bare
Verse 10
I tried my hand at the Bible
Tried my hand at prayer
But now nothing but the water
Is gonna bring my soul to bare
Verse 11
I tried my hand at the Bible
Tried my hand at prayer
But now nothing but the water
Is gonna bring my soul to bare
Verse 12
I tried my hand at the Bible
Tried my hand at prayer
