Classic old cowboy tune about hallucinating in the desert. (FYI–the “Dan” in this song is our lone hero’s mule!) Cool Water was written in 1936 by Bob Nolan and has been covered by dozens of artists, including Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, Slim Whitman, Bob Dylan, even the Muppets! This version is from 1982 by Fleetwood Mac.
The shadows sway and seem to say
tonight we pray for water,
And way up there He’ll hear our prayer
and show us where there’s water,
Cool, clear water.
