We take a lot of things for granted
One day it' ll be taken away
That' s when you' ll realize
How important it was
You never miss your water
Till your well runs dry
Give thanks and praise all the time
The wolf is always by the door


Chorus:
You don' t know what you' ve got
Till you lose it all again
You never miss your water
Till your well runs dry


He' s a hero, now that he' s dead
Oh what a bull preacherman talks about him
When he was alive
He didn' t even know his name
When he was alive
He didn' t get this love
You never miss your water
Till your well runs dry


Chorus:
You don' t know what you' ve got
Till you lose it again
You never lose your water
Till your well runs dry
