Emmylou Harris - Deeper Well (#1) Lyrics

The sun burned hot, it burned my eyes
Burned so hot I thought I'd died
Thought I'd died and gone to hell
Lookin' for the water from a deeper well
I went to the river but the river was dry
I fell to my knees and I looked to the sky
I looked to the sky and the spring rain fell
I saw the water from a deeper well

Well, well, well, well…lookin' for the water from a deeper well

I was ready for love I was ready for the money
I was ready for the blood and ready for the honey
Ready for the winnin', and ready for the bell
Lookin' for the water from a deeper well

I found some love and I found some money
And I found that blood would drip from the honey
Found I had a thirst that I could not quell
Lookin' for the water from a deeper well

Well, well, well, well…lookin' for the water from a deeper well

So I took to the road and I took to the song
But I took it too fast and I took it too long
I wanted my heart and I wanted my soul
Could not keep and I could not hold
So I ran with the moon and I ran with the night
And the three of us were a terrible sight
Nipple to the bottle to the gun to the cell
To the bottom of a hole of a deeper well

Well, well, well, well... lookin for the water from a deeper well

Well I did it for kicks and I did it for hate
I did it for lust and I did it for faith
I did it for need and I did it for love
Addiction stayed on tight like a glove
Hey there mama did you carry that load
Did you tell your baby 'bout the bend in the road
'Bout the rebel yell 'bout the one that fell
Lookin' for the water from a deeper well

Well, well, well, well... lookin for the water from a deeper well
Well, well, well, well…I drank the water from a deeper well
