Donít Go Drinkin' From the Well No More

Don't go drinking from the well no more
Mama done said the water'll kill ya for sure
Don't go walking through the open field
They sprayed our crops, you're sure to get ill

    Papa's so tired he just stays in bed
    And I keep thinking about what my grandpa said
    He said you just can't beat this country life
    But it's sure beating us and it don't seem right

Don't go swimming in the river bed
The water's turned green and the fish are all dead
There's a barrel of poison it's leaking away
I heard 'em talk about it yesterday

    Papa's so tired he just stays in bed
    And I keep thinking about what my grandpa said
    He said you just can't beat this country life
    But it's sure beating us and it don't seem right

Don't go drinking from the well no more
Don't go walking in the open field
Don't go swimming in the river bed
