lyrics

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
