  • Eighteen wheeler dropped me off at that city limits sign
    Sunday morning sunlight hurt my eyes
    It's a long way from where I been back to my home town
    But there's a man in me I need to drown

    Baptize me in that muddy water
    Wash me clean in amazing grace
    I ain't been living like I aughta
    Baptize me in that muddy water

    Made my way to the church at the end of the dirt road
    Dragging what was left of my soul
    I could see the saints out back on the river bank
    And I could hear forgiveness calling out my name

    Baptize me in that muddy water
    Wash me clean in amazing grace
    I ain't living like a aughta, no
    Baptize me in that muddy water

    Baptize me in that muddy water
    Yeah, wash me clean that muddy water, water
    In that muddy water
    Baptize me Writer/s: ANTHONY TYLER KENNEY, FRED K. YOUNG, GREGORY GLEN MARTIN, MARK S. ORR, RICHARD OREN YOUNG
