Been Through the Water by Kyle Matthews
Preacher pulled the boy up from the water.
Hallelujahís arose from the band.
There was a new suit of clothes from his father,
And a prayer of thanks.
The boy walked barefoot all the way home for dinner.
When they laughed at his muddy feet. He said:
Iíve been through the water,
And Iíve come out clean.
Iíve got new clothes to cover me.
And you donít wear your old shoes
On your brand new feet,
When youíve been through the water.
Been through the water.
Preacher turned him around at the altar,
Pronounced the boy and his girl Ďman and wife.í
In two years they were Mother and Father,
And they built them a life.
His old girlfriend saw a moment of weakness
He baits a hook with his grandson of seven.
Says soon Iíll be free from these pains.
The boy asks if heís ever been to heaven.
He says, Ďno, but I think I know the wayí,
