Sons of the Pioneers Cool Water lyrics

All day I've faced the barren waste

Without the taste of water, cool water

Old Dan and I with throats burned dry

And souls that cry for water, cool, clear water

Keep a-movin', Dan, don't you listen to him, Dan

He's a devil not a man

And he spreads the burning sand with water

Dan can you see that big green tree

Where the water's runnin' free

And it's waiting there for you and me

The nights are cool and I'm a fool

Each star's a pool of water, cool water

But with the dawn I'll wake and yawn

And carry on to water, cool, clear, water

The shadows sway and seem to say

Tonight we pray for water, cool, water

And way up there He'll hear our prayer

And show us where there's water, cool, clear, water

Dan's feet are sore he's yearning for

Just one thing more than water, cool, water

Like me I guess he'd like to rest

Where there's no quest for water, cool, clear, water
