"Muddy Water" as written by and Sarah Elizabeth/nichols Johns....
Daddy was clappin', mama was cryin'
The Pentecost preacher was sayin' amen
Went down lost and came up found
Eleven years old I was born again

Oh I, I found the answer in the river that day
Oh I, I saw the light, I saw the way

Goin' back into that muddy water
Arm stretched out like angel wings
Everything's clear in that muddy water
This Kentucky daughter got her heart washed clean
In muddy water

Little girl's gone and a big girl's alive
And big girls have tough calls to make
Borrow or rent, career or kids
Is he really the one, which boy to take

Sometimes it's all too much, I just can't see
Oh I, I know the place I need to be

Goin' back into that muddy water
Arm stretched out like angel wings
Everything's clear in that muddy water
This Kentucky daughter got her heart washed clean
Oh, muddy water, oh, muddy water wash over me, set me free

Goin' back into that muddy water
Arm stretched out like angel wings
Everything's clear in that muddy water
This Kentucky daughter got her heart washed clean

Goin' back into that muddy water
Arm stretched out like angel wings
Everything's clear in that muddy water
This Kentucky daughter got her heart washed clean
In muddy water

(Goin' back into that muddy water, muddy water)
That muddy water
(Everything's clear in that muddy water)
Wash over me
(Goin' back into that muddy water, muddy water)
Set me free
(Everything's clear in that muddy water)
