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
