Brother Water
Lyrics
(chorus)
Brother Water, Devil's got a hold of me (he sent)
Sister Moonshine down to seduce-ah me (and)
In my darkness, Devil won't let me be
Brother Water wash away my sin and set me free

Dad loved the bottle like his Daddy before
Sent Mama to an early grave
And I swore when I'd grow up I'd take pride in livin' clean
But the Devil's fingers caught me that one time I strayed

(chorus)

Now Sister Moonshine, she's as cute as can be
She's the perfect shape to dress in glass
As she looks into my eyes I can't see nothin' else
My intentions melt like ice and then they vaporize

(chorus)

The Devil's Palace is made outta liquid gold (and)
The screw top is his crown of sin (he curls)
An evil finger at me while I'm starin' at his name
On the label as I reach for Johnny, Jack or Jim

(chorus)

My guardian angel can fly faster than I drive (can)
Dive deeper than the deep blue sea
But I feel his grip's a-loosenin' with all the trouble that I'm in
I need you Brother Water, come and wash me clean

(chorus)

So Brother Water I'll take it day at a time
You gotta know I still believe
Lemme drink you as I pray you keep the Devil outta my way (oh)
Brother Water wash me clean of him and set me free

(chorus x2)
