​How Far To The Water

This song is by Eddie From Ohio and appears on the album Actually Not (1993).

I do thirst and I do crave I want to climb
To the top of the mountains
In bourbon rain
I have read and I have seen I want to
Drink the shine of the mountains
From my canteen.

How far to the water
'Cause every well in this country's dry
The cup that I brought her
Gone and vanished before my eyes
How far to the water
Know his caravan won't turn around
A cowgirl's claim a cowboy's name
Were both the shame
Of that one horse town

The vines of France the grapes of Spain
A dance in the fountains
Of pink champagne
Virginia wolfe virginia g.
A dance in the fountains of long iced tea

Forty days the sun beat down
Forty nights never cooled down
Forty days I cut my hands
Forty nights on the rocks of the land
My faith is beginning to sink
Please missy can I have a drink

I do thirst the vines of France and
I do crave the grapes of Spain
But I will settle for a dance
In the fountains of virgin rain
I have read virginia wolfe and
I have drank virginia g
But I will take a bath in your
Fountains let my soul free
