Nick Cave – Wade In The Water lyrics

Printed in J. Silverman, American History Songbook. Nick has sung his version of this song live.

[Chorus:]
Wade in the water.
Wade in the water, children.
Wade in the water.
God's gonna trouble the water.

Jordon's water is chilly and cold.
God's gonna trouble the water.
It chills the body, but not the soul.
God's gonna trouble the water.

If you get there before I do.
God's gonna trouble the water.
Tell all of my friends I'm coming too.
God's gonna trouble the water.
