happy Mama

"Preacher pulled the girl up from the water
Alleluias rose from the banks
There was a new suit of clothes from her Father
And a prayer of thanks…

PA300041

The girl walked barefooted all the way home for dinner
And when they laughted at her muddy feet…

She said I've been through the water and I've come out clean
Got new clothes to cover me
And you don't wear your old shoes on your brand new feet
When you've been through the water
Ah been through the water

PA300043

Preacher turned them aournd at the altar
Pronounced the boy and his girl "man and wife"
In two years they were Mother and Father
And they built them a life
And her old boyfriend saw a moment of weakness
And he said "If you're lonely come see me sometime…"

She said I've been through the water and I've come out clean
Got new clothes to cover me
And you don't wear your old shoes on your brand new feet
When you've been through the water
Ah been through the water

PA300044

She baits a hook with her grandson of seven
And says "Soon, I'll be free from these pains."
The boy asked if she's ever been to heaven
She says "No… but I think I know the way… 'cause I've been through the water…"

PA300045

I've been through the water and I've come out clean
Got new clothes to cover me
And you don't wear your old shoes on your brand new feet
When you've been through the water
Ah been through the water"

Here's to "not the same"

  1. Beautiful verse, what an exciting time. I don’t know of many religions out there that baptize by immersion so I am always so fascinated to learn new things! Congrats to whoever the clean was is! 🙂
