000000
All day I face the 


777700
barren waste


000000
without a taste of


777700
water   Cool


000000
water


555500
Old Dan and I


777700
our throats slate dry


999800
our spirits 


555500
cry out for


000000
water


777700
Cool clear


999800
water


000000
Keep on movin' Dan


777700
some devil's had a plan


000000
buried poison in the sand


777700
don't drink it man


999800
it's in the water


222222
cool clear


000000
water


555500
In my mind I see


777700
a big green tree


555500
and a river flowin' free


777700
waitin' up ahead for


999800
you and me


222222
cool clear


000000
water


222200


Additional verses:

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star is a pool of water
Cool water
but come the dawn, we carry on
we won't last long without water
Cool clear water
Keep on movin' Dan
We're still in no-man's land
Dry bones and sand
People never planned here for water
Cool clear water
In my mind I see a big green tree
And a river flowin' free
Waiting up ahead for you and me
Cool clear water

000000
The shadows sway


777700
they seem to say


000000
tonight we pray for


777700
water   Cool


000000
water


555500
And way up there


777700
If you care


999800
Please show us


555500
where there's good


000000
water


777700
Cool clear


999800
water


222200         000000
Cool clear     water
Cool clear     water
Cool clear     water
