You pyonged “The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow”

Save Note No Thanks
Follow
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

I'm a dead man walking here
But that's the least of all my fears

Ooh, underneath the water

It's not Alabama clay
That gives my trembling hands away
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 un marked hundred grand?
Ooh, underneath the water
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


I'm a dead man walking
I'm a dead man walking

Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles

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
