Go Down Moses - Natalie Merchant

Movin' on, movin' on
Isn't that what I'm supposed to do?
Just hold it back and keep movin' on
Keep movin' on
Pushin' on, pushin' on
Isn't that what I'm supposed to do?
But it's so hard
To keep pushin' on
Pushin' on

I'm movin' on, movin' on
Isn't that what everybody tells me I gotta do?
Oh, yeah
But it's so hard movin' on without you

Every mornin' wakin' in a fever
Where I'm shakin' (?)
My heart started pounding (?)
Muddy water all around me (?)
Cold, shocked and speechless, can anybody reach us?
And why?
Oh, God, why?

Go down, go down, Moses
Go down, Moses
Go down to the city of New Orleans
City of New Orleans
Go back to muddy water (?)
---- muddy water
Let your people cross over
Go down, yeah

I'm movin' on, movin' on
Keep movin'' on
That's what I'm tryin' to do
Just holding back and...movin' on

Keeping on, keeping on, yeah
That's what I'm trying so hard to do
Oh, yeah
But it's so hard keeping on without you

Gone and lost my patience with this hopeless situation
Oh, yeah
I'm alive
I'm a lonely sole survivor
Spared me for some reason, so I'm picking up the pieces
But why?
Oh, God, why?

Go down, go down, Moses
Go down, Moses
Go down to the city of New Orleans
City of New Orleans
And ---- ---- muddy water
---- the muddy water
Just let your people cross over
Go down, yeah

Go down
Oh, Moses, go down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, go down, Moses
Moses
Moses
Moses!
Sweet Moses!
Come on! Come on! Come on
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Sweet Moses!
Sweet Moses!
