Water When The Well Is Dry

Water When The Well Is Dry

Buddy Miller

Down on the corner of the dead end street
Too many tears and not a drop of relief
It'll shake up your soul it'll tear down your pride
Honey keep your eyes pure let us tell no lies
Hatred is a criminal out on the loose

Love might be a judge with a hangman's noose
It'll make you strong it'll make you bitter
I got to find myself a strong deliverer
I need a drink of something like water
I need a taste of love divine

Sometimes you just gotta do what you oughta
Sometimes you bring up the water when the well is dry

Gone out walking through the city tonight
Sittin' through the wreckage underneath the lights
All you can do is pray with all your might
There's a few thousand souls no where in sight
It's hard to swing at something you can't see

Sometimes we just don't know the enemy
Can't live by fear can't live by deception
Hey I'm a man of peace with a few exceptions
I need a drink of something like water
I need a taste of love divine

Sometimes you just gotta do what you oughta
Sometimes you bring up the water when the well is dry
When the world starts shaking

And the walls are breaking down till nothing's left
Baby you're gonna need to hold onto something that is
Stronger than yourself

Baby your eyes were wet with tears
Your skin was drenched in sorrow
But you kiss was an open door

So I walked through to a new tomorrow
Honey like a blade of finest steel
Yea like an arrow straight and true
Like gold in the hottest fire

Baby that is my love my love for you
I need a drink of something like water
I need a taste of love divine

Sometimes you just gotta do what you oughta
Sometimes you bring up the water when the well is dry
