Julie C Myers – Take A Horse To Water lyrics

You can take a horse to the water but you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no
A friend of mine's in so much misery
Some people sail through life, but he has struck a reef
I said "hey man let's go out and get some wisdom"
But first he turned on me, then he turned off his nervous system

You take a horse to water but you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no
You can have it all laid out in front of you but it still don't make you think
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Someone I love has gotta problem
Some people thirst for truth, but he would like a drink said "Hey man, this could turned out to be risky"
He said everything’s okay
As he downed another bottle of whiskey


There's a preacher out there warning me about Satan
Could be that he knows him
Cause' He acts like he's possessed
I said 'Hey man let's hear about God realization for a change'
He said "We ain't got time for that, because of the evils of fornication"
