wade in the water lyrics – eva cassidy

(first release, live version minneapolis, december 22, 1961traditional, arranged by bob dylan)

wade in the water
wade in the water, children
wade in the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

well, who are these children all dressed in red?
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
must-a-be the children that moses lead
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

wade in the water
wade in the water, children
wade in the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

well out of the mountain come fire an’ smoke
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
jehovah n*body be he could’ve spoke
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

wade in the water
wade in the water, children
wade in the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

well, i’m walkin’ down the highway an’ the water’s gettin’ low
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.
walkin’ down the highway, nowhere to go
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.

but it’s wade in the water
wade in the water, children
wade in the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.
god’s a-gonna trouble the water.
