"Icewater" as written by and Lightnin' Hopkins Peter Case....
half the people they want all kinds of things
some want money and some want diamond rings
I feel in love in with millionaire's daughter
and the people in hell all want icewater

well I asked for her hand and she said go see my pa
I found him in the garden and said "I'll be your son-in-law"
and I showed him the thirty dollar ring that I bought her
he said, "people in hell all want icewater"

back under her window I pulled out my robe
come on down baby and we'll elope
she climbed-a halfway but her wrists got caught up
and then the sky was black and it rained icewater

now the millionaire's daughter and me are living in a shack
I ??? all day at night she dreams of going back
I tried to think about the first time I saw her
and the people in hell all want icewater

half the people they want all kinds of things
some want money and some want diamond rings
I feel in love in with millionaire's daughter
and the people in hell all want icewater
