Lyrics and chords

Am  G          F   E7
    Wade in the water
Am  G           F     E7 
    Wade in the water, children,
    Am G F      E7 
    Wade in the water
   Am                           E7  Am 
    God's a-going to trouble the water

    Am        G        F          E7
    See that host all dressed in white
Am    G         F   E7 
    Wade in the water ...
  Am           G              F    E7 
    The leader looks like the Israelite
  Am                            E7  Am 
    God's a-going to trouble the water
See that band all dressed in red
God's a-going to trouble the water
Looks like the band that Moses led
God's a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?
Wade in the water ...
The Holy Ghost is watching over me
God's a-going to trouble the water

The woman at the well said to Jesus the Jew,
"Moshiach will tell us all things"  He said,
"I am He that is speaking to you ...
ask and He would give you living water"

    Living water, Living water children
    Living water, ask and He will give you living water

A new stanza I assembled from John 4

  • from verses around John 4:9-26
The woman at the well said to Jesus the Jew,
"Moshiach will tell us all things"  He said,
"I am He that is speaking to you ...
ask and He would give you living water"

Living water, Living water children
Living water, ask and He will give you living water

See that band all dressed in red
God's a-going to trouble the water
Looks like the band that Moses led
God's a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?
Wade in the water ...
The Holy Ghost is watching over me
God's a-going to trouble the water

If you don't believe I've been redeemed
God's a-going to trouble the water
Just follow me down to the Jordan's stream
God's a-going to trouble the water
To ask or be asked, He said, "Give Me a drink"
He would have given you living water
You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep.
Where can you get [this] living water

The woman at well told Jesus the Jew
Moshiach will tell us all things
He said, "I am he, the one who speaks to you"
God's gonna trouble the water

When I get to Heaven
Sing and shout
God's gonna trouble the water
Nobody there turn me out
God's gonna trouble the water
Well, Jesus met the woman ...
met her at the well
God's gonna trouble the water
He said Look out lady
you're headin' for hell
God's gonna trouble the water

When I get to Heaven
Sing and shout
God's gonna trouble the water
Nobody there turn me out
God's gonna trouble the water
