Water Works Fine

This song is by Eric Bibb and appears on the album Natural Light (2003).

Back in 1983, Sonny Terry said to me:
When I put the bottle down
My friends stopped comin' 'round
They were comin' for my whiskey
My malt liquor an' wine
Since I left it all behind, water works fine

Water works fine - pure an' sweet
It's a natural treat - like a good woman's love

One crazy night we drank tequila like beer
My recollection's unclear -
Ya know I felt like dyin'
My face in the mirror
Scared the devil outa me
Made a blind man see - water works fine

Water works fine - pure an' sweet
It's a natural treat - like a good woman's love
Water works fine - served up neat
Well, it's a natural treat - like a good woman's love

Hung-over, hung-up - drownin' in a cup
I was feelin' kinda strange -
'Bout ready for a change
I was boozin' my mind, weavin' over the line
When I saw the road sign sayin' water works fine

Water works fine - so pure an' sweet
It's a natural treat - like a good woman's love
Water works fine - best cure for the heat
From your head to your feet -
Like a good woman's love
Water works fine - tastes pure an' sweet
Every day of the week - like a good woman's love
Water works fine - well, it's a natural treat
Make me wanna dip my beak -
Like a good woman's love
