Johnny Horton – Hank And Joe And Me lyrics

Hank and joe and me
(Johnny Cash)
" © '59 Anne Rachel Music, ascap / Song Of Cash Music, ascap "

In the desert where we searched for gold the days're hot the nights're cold
Hank and Joe and me walked on so bold and brave and free
For days and days we fought the heat I got so thirsty and I got so weak
And when I fell cause I couldn't go I heard Hank say to Joe
He's dyin' (dyin' dyin') for water hear him cryin' (cryin' cryin') for water
Well lay him down in the dust and sand he said Joe you know he's a dyin' man
Leave him there and let him die I can't stand to hear him cry for water
I don't remember how long I lay but when I awoke it was the break of day
Buzzards circled miles ahead I knew Hank and Joe were dead
My eyes were dimmed but I could see a bed of gold nuggets under me
Now I know that it won't be long till they decorate my bones
Cause I'm dyin' (dyin' dyin') for water can't help cryin' (cryin' cryin') for water
Well they laid me down in the dust and sand he said Joe you know he's a dyin' man
Leave him there and let him die I can't stand to hear him cry for water
He couldn't stand to hear me cry for water
