​Whole Lot Of Water

This song is by Robert Hazard and appears on the album The Seventh Lake (2004).

There's a road in the sand through the sugar cane
There's a house that stands in the sun and rain

Where the old man sits and the ships go by
He never did get up he never even tried

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water in the old man's eyes

Me and Sarah Kaye, we grew up a team
In the bright blue sky, in the hurricanes

Like two boats that sail, tryin' to break free
From the prison walls of the deep blue sea

That's a whole lot of water, more than I can cry
A whole lot of water in my baby's eyes

I never been no slave to no history book
And ev'ry fish I caught I let it off the hook

So I paint the shapes of the sea and sky
And I teach my hand to obey my eye

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water in a young man's eyes

But as ships come in to the old town pier
I would sell my soul in the pictures there

Rich lady said "boy, that not have been"
Told me she could sell ev'rything I had

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water could have passed me by

So I packed my bags and I hit New York
And I learned to swim in a pool of sharks

All the city lights took away my breath
And when a cold wind blew I nearly caught my death

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water more than money buys

Now I dream some things me and Sarah Kaye
Sailin' into the sun out on Old Coos Bay

With an ice cold beer roll across my brow
I would give anything if I could be there now

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water to the other side

Now the bright green leaves have turned to brown
In a crimson street on the sun gone down

Oh the pale blue skies fade away to white
And it all dissolves in the black of night

That's a whole lot of water, more than I can cry
A whole lot of water in a young man's eyes

That's a whole lot of water more than I can cry
A whole lot of water and I'm runnin' dry
