Wade in the water

Wade in the water
Wade in the water chilren
Wade in the water
God gonna trouble these waters

Under this hot sun we toil
Picking a plant we don’t like
Working for a man that don’t care
In a land not our own

Wade in the water

Whipped by the overseer
If we dared tary too long
Move your ass boy
There’s cotton to be picked

Money to be made

Oh lawd I’se been bit
Somebody helps me
Leave em
Keep picking that cotton

You boy, take their place

The tree of woe stands ready
For anyone who dares challenge master
And the whip called widowmaker
To flay you alive

To bleed you dry

Wade in the water
Wade in the water chilren
Wade in the water
God gonna trouble these waters
