Wade in the water, wade in the water, children
Wade in the water, God's a-gonna trouble the water...

I'm gonna take a walk down to the river's side
Where the sinners all gather by the water, children
May not go to heaven but at least I tried
As hard as every other sinner by the water

Now where we gonna hide when the thunder roll
And the dam break loose all the water, children
I can hear the devil just a-stokin' them coals
But they STOP burnin' in the water

Jesus won't mind if we drink our fill
Cause the Lord make wine from the water, children
The whiskey won't kill me, but the moonshine will
But there ain't no trouble in the water

Flip Cassidy and The Junkyard Gospel Los Angeles, California

The Reverend Flip Cassidy is a rusty man who plays rusty songs on rusty guitars. The Junkyard Gospel is a howling, raging acoustic sound bellowed forth with a voice like a rusty saw blade.

Outlaw folk, apocalyptic Americana perfect for driving on long desert highways. Pairs well with whiskey. Won't help with your sins.
