Holy John lives down by the water
Bathing sinners and he wants your daughter
Telling people that they'd better repent
Telling your daughter it was him who was sent
I saw him down there in a long white gown
Taking sinners and holding them down

John, John, won't you wash 'em away
Make us ready for the Judgment Day
Take us down and hold us under
Make the Heavens roar with thunder now
The waters are dirty and the reason is
Holy John had to wash away our sins, yes he did

He came to town two weeks ago
Didn't take long before everyone did know
Down to the riverside they all did flock
To watch him stand upon the rock, yeah
I saw him down there in a long white gown
Taking sinners and holding them down

John, John, won't you wash 'em away
Make us ready for the Judgment Day
Take us down and hold us under
Make the Heavens roar with thunder now
The waters are dirty and the reason is
Holy John had to wash away our sins, oh yes he did

'Can't you see that the waters are dirty
And everybody knows that the reason is
Holy John has to wash away, wash away
Wash away everybody's sins
