lyrics

Trouble’s the Water
Words and Music by Lea Morris
VERSE
Somewhere way back along the line Someone turned some water into wine
He said never tell a soul about what I've done But he knew damn well his time had come
CHORUS
Troubles the water Troubles the water
Lord just open the sky Let the reign begin Trouble’s not the water It's your brother man's sin
VERSE
Now Jesus went down to Galilee
And said, “Come on boys, you can follow me.
But when that sea gets rocking, it'll rest your faith Then, we'll see if you can walk out among the waves”
CHORUS
Trouble's the water Trouble’s the water
Lord just open the sky Let the rain begin Trouble’s not the water It's your brother man's sin
VERSE
Dirty little girl with an empty glass
She ain’t the first. She won’t be the last It’s a funny thing about other people’s pain One man's thirst is another man's gain
CHORUS
Trouble's the water Trouble’s the water Lord just open the sky Let a drop fall in Trouble’s not the water
It's your brother man's sin
BRIDGE
It ain't me
It ain't me
That sin ain't mine
My water's fine
Oh say
Cant you see
This ain’t one of them things that Jesus gonna fix ‘Cause He don't do math or politics
Somebody said Our Father got it all in his hands Won’t you help me Jesus, just to make a stand
VERSE
Now I lay me down to sleep
I say a little prayer for all of those who weep With dull, dark eyes turned to the sky
From a throat so parched they can't even cry
CHORUS
Trouble's the water Trouble’s the water
Lord just open the sky Let the rain begin Trouble’s not the water It's our brother man's sin
