"Deep Dark Water" as written by and Reeves....
Alone and so lonesome bored and so blue
I got the urge to ramble so I took a drink or two
It tempted me to trifle then my true heart went astray
So I wandered in dark water and just threw my life away
I know that it was wrong to fool around this way so long
Someone was sawing on the limb that I was sittin' on
I looked down and I found I could drown in deep dark water
So I cried when I realized I couldn't swim
A fool and his money calls for whiskey and for gin
Filled to the gills and falling for the weaknesses as a man
From one fool to another wrong is never right
I ignored advice from mother and brother look at me tonight
Unsteady as I go with deep dark water down below
They keep sawing louder on my limb and soon I'll have to go
Life's been small hear my call as I fall in deep dark water
Don't be a would-be king and tumble from your throne
