Troubled Waters

This song is by Cat Power and appears on the album The Covers Record (2000).

This song is a cover of "Troubled Waters" by Duke Ellington.
I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn

Sometimes
It's like chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name

I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one

I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn

Sometimes
It's like chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name

I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be
