A bit of live rehearsal fun recorded on the fly and offered as a free download. We loved this version - enjoy the added banjo!

lyrics

Oh my God I can't believe it's true
Black and white the truth is absolute
Shake my bones and leave them where they lay
Shrouded in those sins that cover me

We went down, down to the river
We went down, down to the river
We went down, down to the river
And washed them away

The water's edge reflects my own regrets
Will they fade beneath that cold caress?
Where's that final answer I need most?
Where's my father, son, my holy ghost?

We went down, down to the river
We went down, down to the river
We went down, down to the river
And washed them away

Do you pray that all your faith's not wasted in a book?
It's a shame that all you gave was less than what you took

Take me to that dark secluded wood
Tell me that inside I might be good
Hear that church bell tolling for the brave
Tally my misdeeds that you forgave

We'll go down, down to the river
We'll go down, down to the river
We'll go down, down to the river (and wash them away)
We'll go down, down to the river (and wash them away)
We'll go down, down to the river
And wash them away
