cool water lyrics 4/4
key: [c] hank williams version.

all [c] day i’ve faced the [g7] bar – ren waste
with [c] out the taste of [g7] wa-ter….. cool, [c] wa-ter.
ole [f] dan and i, with [g7] throats burned dry ,
and [c] souls that [f] cry
for [c] wa-ter…. [g7] cool, clear [c] wa-ter.

the [c] nights are cool and [g7] i’m a fool.
each [c] star’s a pool of [g7] wa-ter…. cool, clear [c] wa-ter.
and [f] with the dawn i’ll [g7] wake and yawn
and [c] car-ry [f] on
to [c] wa-ter…. [g7] cool, clear [c] wa-ter.

the [c] sha – dows sway and [g7] seem to say
to- [c] night we pray for [g7] wa-ter…. cool, clear [c] wa-ter
and [f] way up there he’ll [g7] hear our prayer
and [c] show us [f] where
there’s [c] wa-ter…. [g7] cool, clear [c]wa-ter.

[c] keep a-movin’ dan. don’t you [g7] listen to him dan.
he’s the [c] devil, not a man.
he [g7] spreads the burnin’ sand with [c] wa-ter.
say [f] dan can’t you see that [g7] big green tree,
where the [f] water’s runnin’ free.
it’s [g7] waiting there for you and [c] me
and [g7] wa-ter…. cool, clear [c] wa-ter.

dan’s [c] feet are sore he’s [g7] yearnin’ for
just [c] one thing more than [g7] wa-ter…. cool, clear [c] wa-ter.
like [f] me i guess he’d [g7] like to rest
where [c] there’s no [f] quest
for [c] wa-ter…. [g7] cool, clear [c] wa-ter.
