lyrics

Don’t go down to Holy Waters
Moonlight like champagne floats the tide
Endless waves, bleedless borders
Makes the far off rolling shore seem like the sky

We ran down to Holy Waters
Chasin’ wedding bells that skip across the bed
The ford still clearer, a rippled mirror
Shallows current slows reveals her dead

Then I was born ’neath Holy Waters
Tied and shackled, knotted ropes to unpack
Waking up didn’t feel like dying
I’m too young to die, too old for lookin’ back

So I pulled myself up
From that watery grave
And I cut my path straight to his side of town
Oh, the look on his face
As I shot that dog down
Unforgiving, livid, in my wedding gown

Oh Holy Waters
Oh Holy Waters
Oh Holy Waters
Oh Holy Waters

Now he’s gone ’neath Holy Waters
The tide a’ rippin’, rollin’, tearin’ at his soul
The wind it whines, echoes his cryin’
But the river and her song left long ago
