"“Don’t Go Near the Water”" By : Johnny Cash
Don’t go near the water children
Don’t go near the water
From the fountains in the mountains comes the water running cool and clear and blue
And it comes down from the hills and it goes down to the towns and passes through
When it gets down to the cities then the water turns into a dirty grey
Cause it’s poisoned and polluted by the people as it goes along its way
Don’t go near the water children...
I was sittin’ on the bank of the lake at home fishin’ with my little boy
I said, have you got a bite yet son
He said, no sir, have you daddy
He said daddy if we catch a fish can we cook ‘em and eat ‘em
I said maybe we’d better not son
They say it may not be safe to eat a fish from this water anymore
Don’t go near the water children... Don’t go near the water children... Don’t go near the water children...
