    Lyrics

    (Bob McDill / Dickey Lee / Bucky Jones)

    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...
