Muddy Water
by Gaither Vocal Band

Album: Greatly Blessed


Down in New Orleans on the banks of a levy,
My mouth was dry and my heart was heavy
A gray old man fishing next to me saw that look on my face and he began to speak

He said through my years I've learned my lesson
We're on the same boat trying to get to Heaven
This world is full of sin and strife
Son, let me give you some free advice

You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
Or wash your soul in a dirty stream
You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
There's only one well where the water is clean

Muddy water, dirty stream,
Muddy water, dirty stream
Muddy water, there's only one well where the water is clean

Though I never once saw that man again
It's hard to believe how long it's been
The words he said really changed my life
I'm the first one to testify, testify

You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
Or wash your soul in a dirty stream
You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
There's only one well where the water is clean

Muddy water, dirty stream,
Muddy water, dirty stream
Muddy water, there's only one well where the water is clean

You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
Or wash your soul in a dirty stream
You can't quench your thirst drinking muddy water
There's only one well where the water is clean

Muddy water, dirty stream,
Muddy water, dirty stream
Muddy water, there's only one well where the water is clean
