Nothing But the Water (I)
by Grace Potter



I have seen what man can do
When the evil lives inside of you
Many are the weak
And the strong are few
But with water we'll start anew

Won't you take me down to the levy
Take me down to the stream
Take me down to the water
Were gonna wash our souls clean
Take me down to the river
Take me down to the lake
Yes, we'll all go together
We're gonna do it for the good Lord's sake

I have fallen so many times
For the Devil's sweet cunning rhymes
This old world has brought me pain
But there's hope for me again

Well, won't you take me down to the levy
Take me down to the stream
Take me down to the water
We're gonna wash our souls clean
Take me down to the river
Take me down to the lake
Yes we'll all go together
We're gonna do it for the good Lord's sake

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
But now nothing but the water
Is gonna bring my soul to bare
