It was the hottest day of August
All of of us were down by the banks of the Paint Rock River
I was next in line to be baptised
At the innocent age of ten
And I'll never forget, I remember it yet
The taste of that clear, pure water
And that preacher's words still fill my head
And I hear them now and then

And I said, "Yes just lead me on"

And our final high school dance was just about over
I was old enough for the taste of love
When boys turn into men
And I'll never forget, I remember it yet,
The taste of that clear, pure water
But the preacher's words I barely heard,
As sweet Bonnie Lou gave in
She said, "Do you...

And with a little wine and an little time
She would be a prize to win
Now I'll never forget, I remember it yet,
The taste of that clear, pure water
But that preacher's words could not be heard,
When she whispered, " Come on in"
She said, "Do you...
