Marty Robbins - Cool Water 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 waiting 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, 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?

Cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water

    El Paso is a great song, but I love this song just a bit more.

    *You take a sip from your trusty Vault 13 Canteen*

  31. James Hickok

    This makes me genuinely thirsty.

  32. Tim Cantrell

    This version doesn't have the original but far far less hopeful final verse : Dan's feet are sore he's yearning for / just one thing more than water / like me l guess he'd like to rest / where there's no quest for water. The author of this classic Bob Nolan wrote just about every western song one can easily call to mind & this final but little used verse takes the song from just another Roy Rogers "Along the Navajo Trail" western ditty to tragic & immortal anthem.

  33. RollOnToVictory

    ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel so stupid because Fallout New Vegas is my Favorite game and the Ballad of Buster Scruggs is one of my favorite movies and I regardless of how many times I’ve saw this album cover when listening to big iron I never saw that Cool Water was on their once. It’s so cool to see that two of my favorite things are connected.

    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

    [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

  60. Geo Rik

    Yeah in regards to buster Scruggs I was watching it with my ten-year-old granddaughter and probably was inappropriate in the first place but,,, Life is life ,, any way

  61. Antonis Mitsos

    Fits perfectly fallout.

  62. Dustin Stephenson

    This song reminds me of a story grampa used to tell me. Him and his brother Dan walking for miles for work and supplies.

  63. Miyuki Teishi みゆちゃん

    I'm thirsty now

  64. bob dole

    Agua fria

  65. Alejandro Basaldúa

    There is a gigantic amount of songs about love, but we need more songs about water, which is far more important.

  66. pierre g

    Water niggas unite

  67. Marcus Boggs

    This song always reminded me of the scene in the good the bad and the ugly where tuco makes blondie walk the desert and he nearly dies of thirst

  68. Enclave Chief

    African Niggas:

  69. fafafagat

    How in the fuck did this not make into New Vegas? I remember constantly feeling like I was thirsty when I first played New Vegas.

  70. Yellowstone Insider Videos.

    Who's here because of Buster Scruggs?

  71. Shane Hickenbottom

    Great song no joke but now I'm thirsty

  72. ale4DUB

  74. corn

    This would have fit perfectly in New Vegas.

  75. Sgt Kush

    Who the hell is Buster Scruggs? I’m only 34 but I guess pretty old school. Cheers.

  76. aCrowsNest_t

    Cool.. clear... water...
    Dammn im thirsty

  77. RedBaron 71

    I first heard this song when I was 12 because me and my dad were stuck in the desert and he just started singing that song.

  78. Chris Lopes

    It's 33 degrees on a full moonlit night and I am listening to this song over and over again in my backyard and i am very happy and dancing.

  79. Paul O'Farrell

    The definitive version of this great song.

  80. David Lawson

    I love that we were cowboys not that long ago. Anytime anyone bitches about America, I just remind them that we were just a wild west a couple of lives ago. It's actually amazing that we are so relevant considering how young of a nation we are. Hah

  81. Kreppa Awman

    {You take a sip from your trusty Vault 13 canteen}

  85. Kuroperrock

    Living in a country where NOBODY listens to country music, I have to thank movies and videogames for introducing me to these amazing songs. And to YouTube and well, for the recommendations.

  86. James Carmody

    The Jews have faced

    The Sinai wastes

    Without the taste

    Of water

    _Ooh, water_

    Oh, Shem and I

    With throats parched dry

    Let loose a cry

    For water

    _Cool, clear water_

    The day’s are hot

    And Egypt’s not

    The promised lot

    For Hebrews

    _Ooh, Hebrews_

    And with the dawn

    We’ll pray and yawn

    Then carry on

    To water

    _Cool, clear water_


    _Keep a-movin’ Shem_
    _Don’t ya listen to him Shem_
    _He’s a devil, not a man_
    _And he spreads his evil sand_
    _With water_

    Shem, can you spot
    That great big rock
    Where Moses has a rod
    And he’ll make the water flow by God?!

    _Cool, clear water_


    The magi say

    We’re doomed today

    Tonight, we pray

    For water

    _Ooh, water_

    And way up there,

    He’ll ignore our prayer

    Won’t show us where

    There’s water

    _Cool, clear water_



    Cool, clear, water.

    Why this song wassn't in New Vegas I will never understand....

    The song is about mule called Dan and his master, they both see a mirage as they travel through the desert and they are trying to resist.
