Deep Dark Water

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album The Blue Side of Lonesome (1967).

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...
