Civil Wars

Civil Wars - Barton Hollow

rate me

written by Joy Williams & John Paul White

I'm a dead man walking here

That's the least of all my fears

Ooh underneath the water

It's not Alabama clay

Gives my trembling hands away

Ooh Please forgive me father

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow

Devil gonna follow me e'er I go

Won't do me no good washing in the river

Can't no preacher man save my soul

Did that full moon force my hand?

Or that unmarked hundred grand?

Ooh underneath the water

Ooh Please forgive me father

Miles and miles in my bare feet

Still can't lay me down to sleep

If I die before I wake

I know the Lord my soul won't take, Ooh

I'm a dead man walking

I'm a dead man walking here

Keep walking and running and running for miles

Keep walking and running and running for miles

Keep walking and running and running for miles, Woahh

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow

Devil gonna follow me e'er I go

Won't do me no good washing in the river

Can't no preacher man save my soul
