09. Washed By The Water

Live From The Woods


Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

Daddy was a preacher
She was his wife
Just tryin to make the world a little better
You know, shine a light
People started talking
Trying to hear their own voice
Those people tried to accuse my father
Said he made the wrong choice
Though it might be painful
You know that time will always tell
Those people have long since gone
My father never failed

Even if the Earth crumbles under my feet
Even if the ones I love turn around and crucify me
I wonít never ever let you down
I wonít fall
I wonít fall
I wonít fall as long as youíre around me

All songs written by Bear Rinehart and Bo Rinehart Walter Ego Music (ASCAP) / Needtobreathe Music (BMI)

Behind the Song:
'Bear wrote this song about his dad. Anyone who has a parent involved in the ministry knows the struggles involved with being a spiritual leader. People arenít always going to agree with you and sometimes it can get ugly. This song is about working through those hardships and holding on to your calling, no matter what happens. We really wanted a gospel choir on this song. After searching all over we finally found the right choir at Set Free Christian Fellowship in Powdersville, SC. We packed up Sethís studio one night and took a field trip to Powdersville to record the choir ourselves. It worked out great and gave just the right lift to the end of the song.' - Needtobreathe
