Soak the Sin

Album: Blind Melon (1992)

  • I've got to buy some shoes
    These ones are getting lose
    My feet are shrinking in the
    Sun, and it ain't fun
    But it looks like rain up ahead
    In forty miles.
    A big rainbow took the blue sky.

    I'm gonna tell my momma, I love
    Her so and thank you for
    Giving me these bones o gold
    I'm gonna run from my home
    Jump in the river and let the
    Water soak the sin in my soul.

    Fine time we all crossed lines
    make the music that makes us
    Feel fine
    Rednecks on sun decks hearing a
    Hillside Romeo say "Boys this is the
    Good shit, so come on all and eat
    A little bit."

    And if I ever go back home I'm
    Gonna sell
    And tell my momma, I love
    Her so and thank you for
    Giving me these bones o gold
    I'm gonna run from my home
    Jump in the river and let the
    Water soak the sin in my soul.

    Don't even say a word, it confuses me
    What he says to do, is that we don't
    Have to
    We don't have to. Writer/s: MATT PRIME, SAM SMITH
