Water In The Well

by The Ragged Flags

/
1.
Just a man with fortune on his back Through the badlands, the hills of burning black Wooed a sweetheart with that snake-oil you sell But there's no love in her eyes And there's no water in the well Hearts and houses accrue the dust of years Empty promises and payment in arrears With a smile all misgivings you could quell But there's no love in her eyes And there's no water in the well In the well, in the well, in the well Well there's no love in her eyes No water in the well So you lay there beside those broken dreams Sheets entangled with the shards of bitter scenes Rueful glances at the tolling of the bell But there's no hope in her heart And there's no water in the well In the well, in the well, in the well Well there's no hope in her heart No water in the well Just a man with fortune on my back Leaving town now, all in ruin, all in wrack See her standing on the steps of that hotel But there's no love in her eyes As she is saying "Fare thee well" Fare thee well, fare thee well, fare thee well Well there's no love in her eyes… In the well, in the well, in the well Well there's no love in her eyes No water in the well No water in the well No water in the well
