Taken from an original oil painting by the noted cowboy artist and poet, L..H. "Dude" Larsen. A Drink Of Water Now to have a drink of water, cool and pure, fresh and clear, just a good old drink of water, now don't you wish that you were here? It comes right from the mountains, a gurgling all the way. There is a song in every murmur, Through the night and all the day. And to watch the speckled trout as they dart with ease and grace, through the clear and sparkling water, Never staying in one place, Now I have drank at cocktail parties, Whiskey, wine, and all the rest, But when I'm tired, hot and sweaty, I Like my mountain water best.
