To The Well


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
OK - Back to the folk music. Here's an "evangelical" tune for your critique. Call it "newgrass revival?" Anyhow, the idea is that one can only go so far in counseling, advising, persuading - ultimately the most profound decisions are entirely personal (as it should be). Serious subject / light-hearted tune. (Needs a washboard!)

Lyrics
David McCord - To The Well

You want friends, you want trust
You want peace, § then you must go...to...the...source
You want laughs, you want fun
You want love, there's only one, that's the...right...course
Here's what I think - this should not be a hard sell.
I can't make you drink, but I can take you to the well.
To the well…

You want myst'ry, you want thrills
Great adventure, the flames and chills. No fan...ta...sy.
You want meaning, you want hope
You want power, at least to cope, with re-al... i... ty.
Here's what I think - this should not be a hard sell.
I can't make you drink, but I can take you to the well.
To the well…

Everything you seek - you'll find it waiting here
Holy, evil, love and fear
Everything you want, the final to the first
A fountain to quench any thirst
I dare you, if that's what it takes to try
The ultimate experience, this highest high.
Come to the well!

You want now, you want you.
You want freedom, we all do. Yes we...all...do...
You’re outside, you don’t want in.
Don’t want to lose, you’d rather win. That’s no-thing new
Here's what I think - please hear the story I tell.
I can't make you drink, but I can take you to the well.
To the well…

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
