Cool Water

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

 

All day Iíve faced a barren waste 

Without the taste of water, cool water.

Old Dan and I with throats burnt dry

And souls that cry for water,

Cool, clear water.

 

Keep a-moviní, Dan, donít you listen to him, Dan,

Heís a devil not a man

And he spreads the burning sand with water,

Cool water.

Dan, can you see that big green tree

Where the waterís running free

And itís waiting there for me

And you?

 

The nights are cool and Iím a fool,

Each starís a pool of water, cool water.

But with the dawn Iíll wake and yawn

And carry on to water,

Cool, clear water.

 

Keep a-moviní, Dan, donít you listen to him, Dan,

Heís a devil not a man

And he spreads the burning sand with water,

Cool water.

Dan, can you see that big green tree

Where the waterís running free

And itís waiting there for me

And you?

 

The shadows sway and seem to say,

ďTonight we pray for water,

Cool water.Ē

And Ďway up there Heíll hear our prayír

And show us where thereís water,

Cool, clear water.

 

Keep a-moviní, Dan, donít you listen to him, Dan,

Heís a devil not a man

And he spreads the burning sand with water,

Cool water.

Dan, can you see that big green tree

Where the waterís running free

And itís waiting there for me

And you?

 

Danís feet are sore, heís yearning for

Just one thing more than water,

Cool water.

Like me, I guess, heíd like to rest

Where thereís no quest for water,

Cool, clear water.

 

Keep a-moviní, Dan, donít you listen to him, Dan,

Heís a devil not a man

And he spreads the burning sand with water,

Cool water.

Dan, can you see that big green tree

Where the waterís running free

And itís waiting there for me

And you?
