The Soundtrak of Your Life Challenge: Day 12 - Cool Water
ʻIdál (Justice), 6 Mulk (Dominion) 176 B.E. - Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Artist: Hank Williams
Title: Cool Water


Lyrics1

All day I've faced the barren waste
With out the taste of water... cool, water.
Ole Dan and I, with throats burned dry,
and souls that cry
for water... cool, clear water.

The nights are cool and I'm a fool.
Each star's a pool of water... cool, clear water.
And with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
and carry on
to water... cool, clear water.

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray for water.... cool, clear water
And way up there He'll hear our prayer
and show us where
there's water... cool, clear water.

Keep a-movin' Dan. Don't you listen to him Dan.
He's the devil, not a man.
He spreads the burnin' sand with water.
Say Dan can't you see that big green tree,
where the water's runnin' free.
It's waiting there for you and me
and water.... cool, clear water.

Dan's feet are sore he's yearnin' for
Just one thing more than water.... cool, clear water.
Like me I guess he'd like to rest
where there's no quest
for water... cool, clear water.

Hank Williams was one of Grandpa Frank's favorite singers. I remember the vintage Victrola radio-record player that set in my Grandparent's living room. Grandpa had a collect of records that he had acquired over the years. One of the records I remember him playing was Hank Williams recording of cool water. Grandpa wasn't afraid of technology, in fact, when he farmed he was the first farmer in his are to have a Fordson (Mom gave me this information) tractor.

Grandpa would purchase anything he thought that Grandma wanted or that would make her life easier. For years Grandma used an electric wringer washing machine. When automatic wringerless washers came out, he purchased Grandma one of those. I think the one he purchases was a Westing House, but I'm not sure. He never purchased her an automatic dryer because she wouldn't have used it. Grandma like to hang her clothes outside on the clothes line to dry.
