Norman Greenbaum — The Day The Well Went Dry lyrics

Oh, the day the well went dry
I was caught with soap in my eye
Soap in my eye made me cry
The day the well went dry

No more water down in the well
Who do we know? Who can we tell?
Where will we tell them?
Say "oh my", the day the well went dry

'Cause there's no more water down
No more water down
No more water, down in the well
Honey, forget the pail

Water-witcher came today
Said water was three-hundred feet away
Driller said a foot costs nine
What a price to pay

So I hooked up a hose to my neighbor's yard
Said we could take all the water we need
'Til we get our new well dug
Just bein' neighborly

'Cause there's no more water down
No more water down
No more water down in the well
Honey, forget the pail

Everybody's tryin' to cheer me up
Even gave me a bottle of rye
Bottle of rye, mud in your eye
I ain't got the mud 'cause my well is dry

My poor well is dry as a bone
Its heyday has come and gone
Come and gone, me oh my
The day the well went dry

'Cause there's no more water down
No more water down
No more water down in the well
Honey, forget the pail
