"Bring Me Lil' Water Silvy" as written by and Collected And Adpt. By Alan Lomax Huddie Ledbetter....
Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Won't you bring a little water now
Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Lord, ev'ry little once in a while

Well do you love me Sylvie
Oh do you love me now
Oh do you love me Sylvie
Yeah! ev'ry little once in a while

Well bring a little water Sylvie
Won't you bring a little water now
Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Lord, ev'ry little once in a while

Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Won't you bring a little water now
Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Lord, ev'ry little once in a while

C'mon an' prove it to me Sylvie
Prove it to me now
Won't you prove it to me Sylvie
Yeah! ev'ry little once in a while

Well bring a little water Sylvie
Won't you bring a little water now
Won't you bring a little water Sylvie
Lord, ev'ry little once in a while

He's shoutin' "Hey Sylvie, c'mon, come on round here with the water, what you doin' there". But she ain't comin'. Man getting' hot, an' boy he's thirsty, so he make up a little song, sing to the woman, make her bring the water round a little faster. Here the way he sing.....
