Standing Knee Deep in a River (Dying of Thirst)

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album The Best of Don Williams (1975).

Friends I could count on
I could count on one hand
With a left over finger or two
I took them for granted
Let them all slip away
Now where they are I wish I knew

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river
And dying of thirst

Sometimes I remember
The good people I've known
Some I've forgotten I suppose
One or two still linger
Oh, I wonder now
Why I ever let them go

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river
And dying of thirst

So the side walk is crowded
The city goes by
I just rushed through another day
And a world full of strangers
Turn their eyes to me
But I just look the other way

They roll by just like water
And I guess we never learn
Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river
And dying of thirst

Go through life parched and empty
Standing knee deep in a river
Dying of thirst...
