    "Dirty Water" Lyrics

    John Mayall

    Well I don't need you hangin' round my door
    Tryin' to drag me back down to the shore
    And I ain't gonna drink your dirty water no more
    Well I got wet from my head down to my legs
    And I drank dirty water down to the dregs
    But I won't do it again I don't care who begs

    Dirty water - now what's that for
    Dirty water - I ain't drinkin' no more
    I ain't drinkin' no more

    You got a lie underneath your tongue where it

    can't be seen
    And you want to put the truth on guillotine
    But you might as well put out a fire with gasoline
    Well you can serve dirty water from a golden cup

    You can try to lock up the truth but the door won't shut
    'Cause the truth just keeps comin' out like blood from a cut


    You can try to sweeten dirty water up with grenadine
    But I can still read you just like a magazine
    And I ain't gonna drink no more till the water runs clean


    Baby you got the kind of love that I can't afford
    And I don't have a taste for what's in that glass you poured
    Now I ain't gonna drink that dirty water no more
