TROUBLED WATERS >From the film "Belle Of The Nineties" (1934) (Music: Arthur Johnston / Lyrics: Sam Coslow) Mae West with Duke Ellington's Orch. (Film Soundtrack) - 1934 Oh, I'm gonna drown down in those troubled waters They're creepin' round my soul, they're way beyond control And they'll wash my sins away before the morning They say that I'm one of the Devil's daughters They look at me with scorn, I'll never hear that horn I'll be underneath the water judgement morning Oh, Lord, am I to blame Must I bow my head in shame If people go 'round scandalising my name I'm gonna drown down in those troubled waters They're creepin' round my soul, they're way beyond control And they'll wash my sins away before the morning Oh, Lord, am I to blame Must I bow my head in shame If people go 'round scandalising my name I'm gonna drown down in those troubled waters They're creepin' round my soul, they're way beyond control And they'll wash my sins away before the morning (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
