  • Well, I woke up this morning with the cold water
    With the cold water, with the cold water
    Woke up this morning with the cold water
    With the cold water, with the cold

    Well, the police at the station and they don't look friendly
    Well, they don't look friendly, well they don't look friendly
    Police at the station and they don't look friendly
    Well, they don't look friendly, well they don't

    Blind or crippled, sharp or dull
    I'm reading the Bible by a forty-watt bulb
    What price freedom, dirt is my rug
    Well, I sleep like a baby with the snakes and the bugs
    Well, I

    Stores are open but I ain't got no money
    Well, I ain't got no money, well I ain't got no money
    Stores are open but I ain't got no money
    Well, I ain't got no money, well, I ain't

    Found an old dog and he seems to like me
    Seems to like me, well, he seems to like me
    Found an old dog and he seems to like me
    Well, he seems to like me, well, he seems

    Seen them fellows with the cardboard signs
    Scrapin' up a little money to buy a bottle of wine
    Pregnant women and the Vietnam vets
    I say beggin' on the freeway 'bout as hard as it gets

    Well, I slept in the graveyard, it was cool and still
    Cool and still, it was cool and still
    Slept in the graveyard, it was cool and still
    Cool and still and it was cool

    Slept all night in a Cedar grove
    I was born to ramble, born to rove
    Some men are searchin' for the Holy Grail
    But there ain't nothin' sweeter than ridin' the rails

    I look forty-seven but I'm twenty-four
    Well, they shooed me away from here the time before
    Turned their backs and they locked their doors
    I'm watchin' TV in the window of a furniture store

    And I woke up this morning with the cold water
    With the cold water, with the cold water
    I woke up this morning with the cold water
    With the cold water, with the cold

    Well I woke up this morning with the cold water
    Cold water, with the cold water
    Woke up this morning with the cold water
    Cold water, with the cold Writer/s: KATHLEEN BRENNAN, THOMAS ALAN WAITS
