  • 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 Writer/s: Bob Nolan
