I ran like a speeding train
cut my hair and changed my name
only had myself to blame
for the company I was keeping

curse my restless wandering feet
prone to wander endlessly
all the love you gave to me
it wasn't enough to keep me

oh, I stole from my father all I thought I could sell
tossed his copper, and I watched as it fell
but there wasn't any water in the wishing well

bent my knee to many kings
idols of prosperity
heard that dollar calling me
so I sought it in the city

oh, I stole from my father all I thought I could sell
tossed his copper, and I watched as it fell
but there wasn't any water in the wishing well

for my soul, he made an offer
and to the dust again I fell
and oh, that devil's got a hold on me now
because there wasn't any water in the wishing well
