​Water's So Cold

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album I Love a Song (1963) and on the album I Pawned My Past Today (1969).

The crest of the waves break over my head
My strength's about gone and soon I'll be dead
I'd rather be dead out here in the sea
Than to love a woman who never loved me

Oh, the water's so cold out here in the dark
The water's so cold as cold as your heart
The lights from the shore are fast growing dim
The water's so cold I can hardly swim

I offered my ring I offered my name
She said you're a child, she put me to shame
If she saw me now she'd have to agree
Most men couldn't swim this far out to sea

Oh, the water's so cold out here in the dark
The water's so cold as cold as your heart
The lights from the shore are fast growing dim
The water's so cold I can hardly swim
The water's so cold I can hardly swim
