Johnny Cash - Have a Drink of Water lyrics

In the long, hot, thirsty summer of about 32 A.D. Along a dusty highway, there came a man of Galilee And as he went through Samaria, he stopped at Jacob's well And there he met a woman whose deep secrets he would tell "Could I have a drink of water?", Soft and quietly asked he And she said, "Sir, I'm Samaritan, how dare you speak to me?" He said, "If you would ask of me than either son of man Would give you living water and you'd never thirst again' Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Dip in' to the endless well, pour it on the fires of hell Have a drink and sing and shout as the flames of hell go out Have a drink of water, everlastin', endless water Then the woman said, "Sir, you have no way to draw out of this well Our father Jacob dug it and the stories it could tell From this well drank his children and his kettle by the score Where is your well, Sir, tell me, that will flow forever more" And he answered and said, "Unto her your water will go dry And my well is everlastin', if you drink you'll never die€ My father God's a spirit and he set me under men To give you living water so you'll never thirst again Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Dip in' to the endless well, pour it on the fires of hell Have a drink and sing and shout as the flames of hell go out Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Well, there now are many thirstin' in this modern century Whose thirst could be quenched quickly by the man from Galilee For the water flows eternal from the well that never dries For it flows right out of Heaven where the soul never dies So if you're hot and tired and thirstin' And if you crave a cool, tall drink He will pour it right out for you a lot quicker than you think He already knows you're thirsty so just let him come on in And he'll give you livin' water and you'll never thirst again Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Dip in' to the endless well, pour it on the fires of hell Have a drink and sing and shout as the flames of hell go out Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water Have a drink of water, everlastin' livin' water, bro Have a drink of water, ever last Clap your hands and sing and shout
