Lucinda Williams — I Asked For Water (He Gave Me Gasoline) lyrics

Written by Chester Burnett

Gurf Murlix guitar
John Ciambotti bass
Donald Lindley drums
Juke Logan harmonica

Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
I went down to the depot looked up on the board
I went down to the depot looked up on the board
Saw that train a running but I could not get on board
I asked the conductor can I ride the blinds
I asked the conductor can I ride the blinds
Said girl buy your ticket buy your ticket
Cause this train ain't none of mine

Solo

Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
Oh, I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
I asked him for water, he gave me gasoline
