Train's coming but I'm stuck on this road
Moon's rising and my blood is growing cold
Preacher man can't save a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

I'm bound for the broken promise land
To meet my demons and get back my upper hand
Lawman can't catch a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Lawman can't catch a soul like mine
Miracles are just too damn hard to find

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Ain't gonna drown in the water
Cause the good lord ain't bringing me home

Wonderful voice, excellent lyrics.
Why intentionally degrade/distort the bass line?  I do not find that it add to the song. 
Nice voice. The song also.
I didn't know Maisie Williams larked as a pseudo-pop smoky lounge singer
I like the way she seems to be going for an (argumentative) dialog with Wade in the Water and all of the country singers who've sung that song. It's nice to have the point and counterpoint
If her father wasn't rich, famous and connected, there is absolutely no way that she'd get a major label release...nepo babies just inherently irk me...especially when we're sold on their "talent"...

Harlem River Blues by Justin Townes Earle fits too, though sadly it turned out the wrong way in the song and for him.

It's a big, fat pile of nothing, at least for me.
"You can do it!"
Drown while washing the dishes?
Her voice is instantly recognizable and interesting. Although the other piece that RP plays seems like some sort of novelty, this has some integrity.
Nice -- I get to pop Ms. King's board cherry -- I'll be gentle. This is nice -- sultry, driving beat -- gritty -- Amy Winehouse-ish -- solid 8.
Finally first!  

That's it, nothing else to say.

Oh, I do like it though.
