Cool Water
Marty Robbins Lyrics


All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear, water

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water
Cool water
And with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water, cool clear water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for you and me?
Water, cool clear water

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water
Cool water
And way up there he'll hear our prayer
And show us where
There's water, cool clear water

Keep a-movin, Dan, don't you listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for you and me?
Water, cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water

All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water

Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear water

[Verse 2]
The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water
Cool water

And with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water
Cool, clear water

[Verse 3]
Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water

Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waiting there for you and me?
Water
Cool, clear water

[Verse 4]
The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water
Cool water

And way up there He'll hear our prayer
And show us where there's water
Cool, clear water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water

And it's waitin' there for you and me?
Water
Cool, clear water
Cool, clear water

I first heard "Cool Water" by Marty Robbins when I was a teenager visiting my friend next door to our farm in Tennessee. I thought it was coolest (no pun intended) song I had ever heard. Today at age 65 listening to it brings back many wonderfully fun memories--and a tear to my eye. Marty was one of America's greatest performers.

My granny turned 82 on the new year. And was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer 1 month later. And passed on 3/18/2022. I'll never forget traveling with you and gramps in the RV and visiting the grand canyon, Utah, Florida, the Dakotas and Wyoming and listening to old cowboy CD's. I'll miss you Gran; you have definitely made me the man I am. I'm 29 today and I never gave you any great grand kids and I'm sorry. She was so healthy and we all expected her to live for many more years. Just want to let you know your ashes will nourish many wildflowers that will grow and bring more dear into mamaw and papaws grave where we returned your ashes today with roses and lillies! Love you Granny!❤❤❤

My father was in a field hospital in the Pacific ( WWII ) healing from Malaria. He said a soldier was singing this song in the sick bay. Years later he bought this album by Marty Robbins.
