David Olney – Deeper Well lyrics
Well, the sun burned hot, it burned my eyes
Burned so hot I thought I'd died
Thought I'd died and gone to hell
Looking for the water from a deeper well

Well, I went to the river but the river was dry
I fell to my knees and I looked to the sky
Looked to the sky and the Spring rain fell
I drank the water from a deeper well
Well, well, well, well
I drank the water from a deeper well, alright

Well, I fell in love like a baby child
I fell for a touch and I fell for a smile
Smile turned bitter and her touch turned cold
I could not keep what I could not hold

So, I ran with the moon and I ran with the night
And the three of us made a terrible sight
Whored and we gambled with the money we'd steal
Looking for the water from a deeper well
Well, well, well, well
Looking for the water from a deeper well

Well, the moon got weak and he soon was gone
And the night got sick and he died with the dawn
Died with the dawn with a drink in his hand
Too sick to walk, too drunk to stand

Well, time stood still but I ran wild
And I got my fill with a crooked smile
Woke up on the floor of a jailhouse cell
Looking for the water from a deeper well
Well, well, well, well
I drank the water from a deeper well

Well, the sun burned hot, it burned my eyes
Burned so hot I thought I'd died
Thought I'd died and gone to hell
Looking for the water from a deeper well

Well, I went to the river but the river was dry
And I fell to my knees and I looked to the sky
Looked to the sky and the Spring rain fell
I drank the water from a deeper well
Well, well, well, well
I drank the water from a deeper well
