Born sour as a lemon tree
Sting meaner than a bumble bee
Strait crooked as an uphill stream
And more senseless than a jailbird's wings

But now I hear old wisdom callin' me down to the sea
So I can be forgiven when good water washes me

I'm goin' down, down to the sea
Going down to get a witness
I'm going down on my knees
Going down to get a witness
I'm goin' way down, down deep
Going down to get a witness
I'm gonna rise up from beneath
So can I get a witness?

One's harder than a precious stone
Head harder than a volcano
Mouth dirty as a white shoe soaked
Tongue twisted as a tornado

But now I hear old wisdom callin' me down to the sea
So I can be forgiven when good water washes me

I'm goin' down, down to the sea
Going down to get a witness
I'm going down on my knees
Going down to get a witness
I'm goin' way down, down deep
Going down to get a witness
I'm gonna rise up from beneath
And I'm gonna get a witness

Saved by righteous hunger
And given holy comfort
Lead by sacred thunder
Coming up from under

I'm goin' down, down to the sea
Going down to get a witness
I'm going down on my knees
Going down to get a witness
I'm goin' way down, down deep
Going down to get a witness
Yes, and the Lord knows
When I rise up from beneath
I'm gonna get a witness

I'm goin' down, down to the sea
I'm going down, I'm gonna be redeemed
I'm goin' way down, down deep
And when I rise up from beneath...
