American Aquarium – Water In The Well lyrics
[Verse 1]
Dear Heavenly Father, what have I done?
Used to have it all, now I'm left with none
The Great State of Georgia took the farm away
Because of the bills that I could not pay

[Verse 2]
My family's name has been here since 1833
A hundred years of sweat and blood handed down to me
So every day I work these fields and every night I pray
The rain, the rain don't ever come and I doubt any's on the way

[Chorus]
Oh what will I do when all else fails?
What will I do when no water's in the well?
Oh what will I do when there's nothing left to sell?
Oh, what will I do? Only time will tell

[Verse 3]
I hear there's work in Richmond and some in New Orleans
But outside that Clarke County line is a world I've never seen
The papers say that the times are tough and money's runnin' low
But the bottom doesn't look so bad when the bottom's all you know

[Chorus]
Oh what will I do when all else fails?
What will I do when no water's in the well?
Oh what will I do when there's nothing left to sell?
Oh, what will I do? Only time will tell

[Verse 4]
Dear Heavenly Father, I've come before you now
A bottle's in my left hand, a pistol's to my brow
The preacher says salvation will cleanse all my bad deeds
But I could never forgive myself for failin' my family

[Chorus] w
What will I do when all else fails?
What will I do when no water's in the well?
Oh what will I do when there's nothing left to sell?
Oh, what will I do? Only time will tell
