    Lyrics

    I've done a bad thing it's okay
    I'm going down to the river today
    And the river's gonna wash my sins away
    Til I'm born again tomorrow
    Oh to get over my head
    Make me forget my sorrow

    I'm going down to the river alone
    Don't tell mama and daddy I'm gone
    And if they cry when I don't come home
    Just lie and tell them I'm funnin'
    Whoa to get out of my eyes
    Into the river wide I'm runnin'

    And I can't swim
    But it's alright
    'Cause all my sin will drag me down even if I could
    And if it weren't for him and the love that night
    I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
    'Cause a good girl should

    This old town'll have my skin
    I can't speak the trouble I'm in
    So if I don't come back again
    Go lie beneath the willow
    'Cause where I carved my name
    Is where my soul you'll remain
    And I'll still know

    Lord, and I can't swim
    But it's alright
    'Cause all my sin will drag me down even if I could
    And if it weren't for him and the love that night
    I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
    'Cause a good girl should

    When I meet the Lord so kind
    I'm gonna give him a piece of my mind
    And I'll tell him I wanna know why oh why When he's so damned forgivin'
    My daddy won't look in my eyes
    Momma knows the lies I'm living

    Oh, I can't swim
    But it's alright
    'Cause all my sin will drag me down even if I could
    And if it weren't for him and the love that night
    I'd be living for the light like a good girl should
    'Cause a good girl should
