"Tall Drink of Water" as written by and Matraca Maria Berg....
You can't run from your blues
You can't waltz across Texas in a beat up Subaru
So I sat a bar down the street from Pete's garage
Then you walked in, like a long legged, sweet mirage
And I could stay till the wells run dry
I could stay till wells run dry
But a tall drink of water is all I need
A tall drink of water in faded jeans
I could run or I could ask
Could I dip into your loving cup with a crystal glass?
I've been looking for a cowboy with a sense of poetry
I've been looking for a man I want but I don't need
And I could stay till the wells run dry
I could stay till the wells run dry
But a tall drink of water will get me by
A tall drink of water with big dark eyes
Baby nothing's as wild as a woman
With a broken heart
I'm just looking for a place
A place to start
Check the tires, pump the gas
While the blacktop hisses like a snake in the burning grass
Baby, Amarillo's as hot as a barbecue
But not nearly enough for a man like you
And I could stay till the wells run dry
I could stay till the wells run dry
I could stay till the wells run dry
But a tall drink of water will last for miles
A tall drink of water makes me smile
It makes me smile (Tall drink of water)
Yes a tall drink of water (Tall drink of water)
Tall drink of water (Tall drink of water)
Sure feels good (Tall drink of water)
Thank you baby
