Nothing But The Water

Nothing But the Water (Live) – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Lyrics

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 the water, We’ll start anew

Well, won’t you take me down to the levy,
take me down to the stream,
take my 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 have fallen so many times
For the devil’s sweet, cunning rhymes
And 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 my 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 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.

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 devils fire.
But every time, I sit down to pray,
the devils charm, pulls me away.
So come on water sweet water, wash me down
So 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, and it’s my time
and 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 the prayer,
but now nothing but the water
is gonna bring my soul to bare.

Tried my hand at the bible,
tried my hand at the prayer,
but now nothing but the water
is gonna bring my soul to bare.

Tried my hand at the bible,
tried my hand at the prayer,
but now nothing but the water
is gonna bring my soul to bare…
