Don Williams – One Good Well lyrics

There's a million oil rigs pumping that black gold all over the world
Sheiks and cowboy billionaires in limousines loaded with sparkling girls
But money can't buy happiness just listen to the stories they tell
All you need to really succeed in life is one good well
It takes one good well deep and everflowing
It takes one good well to draw from night and day
Pure and fine it's yours and mine and it's always enough
We got one good well overflowing with everlasting love
[ piano ]
Don't it seem kinda funny how people with a lot of money only hunger for more
You think they'd learn that money can burn it's love that keeps the wolf from the door
Precious love lies deep inside hearts you can't buy and sell
When the money's low still we know we got one good well
It takes one good well...
Oh we got one good well overflowing with everlasting love
