John The Baptist
Blood Sweat And Tears Lyrics


Holy John lives down by the water
Savin' sinners and he wants your dollar
Tell the people that they'd better repent
Tellin' your daughter it was him who was sent
I saw him down there in a long white gown
Takin' sinners and holdin' them down

John, John, won't you wash 'em away?
Make us ready for the judgement 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
And watch him stand upon the rock
I saw him down there in a long white gown
Takin' sinners and holdin' them down

John, John, won't you wash 'em away?
Make us ready for the judgement 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

Ooh can't you see that the water's dirty
And everybody knows that the reason is
Holy John has to wash away, wash away
Wash away everybody's sins

Because in the beginning was the Word, there is first evidence of Christ's return in prophecy. I was shown this beginning in 2012 A.D.

According to the Book of Daniel, Jesus has already returned and we have entered the "age to come" foretold by Jesus in the Harmonious Gospel of St. Mark, chapter ten, verse thirty on December 30, 2018 A.D., the Glorious Manifestation of Our King, Lord, and Savior.

This comment provided on the 284th day of the 2nd year of the General Resurrection of the Dead.

The specifics of the Book of Daniel include the foretelling of the exact days of Jesus' baptism, crucifixion, and return in glory.

There is no more antichrist because the spirit of antichrist was destroyed by the breath of Jesus' mouth at the glory of His coming.

I, St. John the Baptist, have been resurrected for more than 65 years.

Cover of a tune by the former BST leader, Al Kooper. I like this version better. Both are in my BST playlist.

Chip Reid

This song is one of my favorite BST songs, too.

John Bradley

What a wonderful song by BST. Very powerful with spiritual overtones...

49 years later this number is still a classic...in fact it always will be, by the one and only BS & T...love the flugelhorns and other brass in the background...very stirring 😇👍👍
