DEEPER WELL (Dave Ohey / Daniel Lanois / Emmylou Harris) Emmylou Harris 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 an I looked to the sky I looked to the sky and the spring rain fell I saw the water from a deeper well Well...lookin for the water from a deeper well Well...lookin for the water from a deeper well I was ready for love I was ready for the money Ready for the blood and ready for the honey Ready for the winnin', ready for the bell Lookin' for the water from a deeper well I found some love and I found some money 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...lookin for the water from a deeper well Well...lookin for the water from a deeper well Well I did it for kicks and I did it for faith I did it for lust and I did it for hate I did it for need and I did it for love Addiction stayed on tight like a glove 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...lookin for the water from a deeper well Well...lookin for the water from a deeper well I rocked with the cradle and I rolled with the rage I shook those walls and I rattled that gage I took my trouble down a deadend trail Reachin' out a hand for a holier grail 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...lookin for the water from a deeper well Well...lookin for the water from a deeper well (Contributed by Nancy - October 2003)
