Alabama 3 – Wade Into The Water lyrics

I wanna go deep down, yeah
I wanna go deep down, yeah
'Cause I remember
Met down by the river

The blue moon on the rise, yeah
I broke down 'at Brando move
By your Marilyn Monroe eyes, yeah

We were swimmin' in silver
We were searchin' for gold
And we promised that night
That we would never grow old

And you sang to me
Wade into the water with me
Wash my body down
Take me to the bottom, baby
An' I won't make a sound

Baptize me like a child
Let salvation start
'Cause if you take me
To the bottom of the river, baby
I'll take you to the bottom of my heart
(Take me down to the river)

We burned brighter than heaven
Lord we, we shone like the stars
I got as as drunk as Bogart
You were just smokin' like the call

We were digging for diamonds
We were divin' for pearls
Higher up than the satellites
And out of this world

And you sang to me
Wade into the water with me
Wash my body down
Take me to the bottom baby
'Cause I won't make a sound

Baptize me like a child
Gotta let salvation start
'Cause if you take me
To the bottom of the river, baby
I'll take you to the bottom of my heart
(Take me down to the river)

Well, now the, the river is frozen
The blue moon is down
My drink has run dry
Lord your cigarette's gone out

All the diamonds and the pearls, yeah
All the silver and the gold
They were born to the dust, yeah
It's so cold

Sing it now
Wade into the water with me
Wash my body down
Take me to the bottom baby
'Cause I won't make a sound

Baptize me like a child
Gotta let salvation start
'Cause if you take me
To the bottom of the river, baby
I will take you
I will take you, now

S wade into the water with me
Wash my body down
Take me to the bottom baby
'Cause I won't make a sound

Baptize me like a child
Gotta let salvation start
'Cause if you take me
To the bottom of the river, baby
I'll take you to the bottom of my heart
(Take me down to the river)

Deep down, yeah
Deep down to the bottom
(Take me down to the river)
(Take me down to the river)
(Take me down to the river)
