Mickey Newbury - "Tilde" lyrics

Bring me a little water Tilde
Bring me a little water now
Bring me a little water Tilde
I am so cotton dry

I am out in this cotton field Tilde
Sun up to sun down
Put that cotton in a ten foot sack
Til I am six feet in the ground
Tilde
Bring me water Tilde

Bring me a little water now Tilde
Bring me little water Tilde
Bring me little water Tilde
Oh I am hot and dry

Oh Tilde Tilde
I am so hot and dry
Tilde Oh Tilde
Times I wish I could lay down

Tilde you're a breath of sunshine
Fresh as a lullaby
You could put a smile
On a face in a stone
Bring a tear to a dead mans eye
Bring me water now Tilde
Give me water now
Bring me water Tilde
I am so hot
I am so hot

Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde

Oh Tilde came to see that mountain
There is a river on the other side
No trouble and no care
Would be waitin' for me there
It is just beyond the sky

Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde
Bring me water now Tilde

Tilde I am so hot and dry
I wish I could lay right down
I wish I could lay right down
I wish I could lay right down and die
Tilde Tilde Tilde
Oooo
