lyrics

Take Me Down

Sunday the preacher said,
"What you've gotta do is come and lay your head under the watery blue.
With white robes, all who come will be made brand new."
So with high hopes and hymn songs
The congregation's voices filled the room.

Singing
Take me down to the river
Where all Christians go
Running water gonna make me shake and shiver
Cause most days I'm feeling worn
And I want to be reborn
Take me down
Lord, take me down

Preacher looked around and he said, "Follow me."
They went to the edge of town and there came upon a creek.
Every child, every man, every mother, every wife,
First they'd smile, then they'd stand in line waiting to change their lives.

Singing
Take me down to the river
Where all Christians go
Running water gonna make me shake and shiver
Cause most days I'm feeling old
Give me a water grave where I can lay my soul
Take me down
Lord, take me down

Preacher wiped his brow, and he said, "I'll see you next week."
His suit was ruined anyhow, all for the sake of the kingdom of the meak.
But each Sunday just off the road the congregation sings their song.
They await all of those who do not know it but might choose to sing along.

Singing
Take me down to the river
Where all Christians go
Running water gonna make me shake and shiver
Cause most days I'm feeling old
You know I'd trade away my silver and my gold

If you take me down to the river
Where all Christians go
Running water gonna make me shake and shiver
Cause most days I'm feeling worn
And I want to be reborn
Take me down
Lord, take me down
