Grace Potter & The Nocturnals - Nothing But The Water (II)

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



So come on water, sweet water, wash me down

So come on water, sweet water, wash me down



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



So come on water, sweet water, wash me down

Come on water, sweet water, wash me down



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



With the water, sweet water, wash me down

Come on water, sweet water, wash me down



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



With the water, sweet water, wash me down

Come on water, sweet water, wash me down



Tried my hand at the Bible

Tried my hand at prayer

But now nothing but the water

Is gonna bring my soul to bare



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



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



I tried my hand at the Bible

Tried my hand at prayer
