Three Feet of Water #BG #BrantleyGilbert

Well, my boy did it again.

I just love Brantley Gilbert and his mad song writing skills.  It’s like every album he releases hits each side of human experiences possible whether it’s the fun party mode side (Bottoms Up or The Weekend), standing up against domestic violence and abuse (Read Me My Rights or Bullet in a Bonfire) and then the spiritual side (Just As I Am and now Three Feet of Water).  With song albums named Halfway to Heaven, A Modern Day Prodigal Son, Just As I Am and The Devil Don’t Sleep, you can really see his spiritual journey over the years and see him transform through the music even though he’s a secular artist.

His current album The Devil Don’t Sleep has the best song about baptism that I’ve ever heard.  It’s exactly how I’ve felt throughout my own spiritual journey.  Can faith really save us?  Am I really forgiven?  Is there really new life?  Does this Christian thing really work?  We all have our doubts at times right?  At least I do.

This song is so good y’all.  The lyrics are:

Three Feet Of Water

Got a whole lot of years
And a whole lot of pain
And it all got me here
Where the river meets the clay
Rewindin’ through my past
Tryin to find some good
But I can’t seem to see
What mama always could

And that sun is shinin’ down
On all my darker days
They’re comin’ to me now
As I hear the preacher say
In the name of the Son and the Father
Can I really leave it all
In three feet of water?

I can’t unbreak the laws
Straighten out the rules I’ve bent
Take the broken dreams and hearts
Make ’em all whole again
I been carryin’ around
All the messes that I’ve made
But a few more steps from now
They’ll all be washed away

And that sun is shinin’ down
On all my darker days
They’re comin’ to me now
As I hear the preacher say
In the name of the Son and the Father
Who’d’ve thought I could leave it all
In three feet of water
Washin’ over me
Amazing Grace the choir sings
And now I know what mercy’s all about

And that sun is shinin’ down
And all my darker days
They’re nowhere to be found
All that preacher had to say
Was in the name of the Son and the Father
Who’d’ve thought I could leave it all?
You took my cross so I could leave it all
In three feet of water
Mmm, in three feet of water
