Patty Griffin Holy Water Lyrics

Last updated:

Well someone missed that little spider
spider upon my shoulder
Devil smiled from way down there
in his blackened hold yeah
Well the priest recited holy words
and wiped my forehead clean
all around the world that day
they heard the babies scream
whoa let it out baby
Those ruffles round my ankles
and those ribbons in my hair
well they could not hide that little spider
lurking way down there
Yeah so when I asked my mama
what those little feelings mean
she said go and find your rosary
and count your blessings
Whoa mama birds do it bees do it dogs do it mama
mama I got some holy water
I'm a gonna pour it all over me
Gimme some of that holy water
Come and pour it all over me
I been eating contradictions
just like they was little snacks and
getting all that fiction confused with all those facts
Yeah but I can't live that way no more I had to admit default
Mama said she told me so (?) but I still love her so
Oh Mama admit it you did it
You (?) now mama
Mama I got some holy water
I'm a gonna pour it all over me
Gimme some of that holy water
Come and pour it all over me
I don't know but I'll certainly find out
Admit it you did it
You sanctify sanctify
I got some holy water
I'm a gonna pour it all over me
Gimme some of that holy water
Come and pour it all over me
I don't know but I'll certainly find out yeah
