"Wade in the Water" is an African American spiritual. First published in 1901, it was popularised by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, an a cappella chorus at the historically African American Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. It was first recorded in 1925. Whilst open to interpretation, the lyrics include biblical themes and references to slavery. The song may also have been associated with the "Underground Railroad," a network of safe houses used by escaping salves in the U.S.
