I never been to Cincinnati
Well maybe I’ll take some time to make that ride on the road to the west
Coast
Nor have I been to Salt Lake City
But I’m on my way to San Jose and don’t know when I’m coming home

I’ve been looking for the well
And I’m looking for the water
But in this city now
It’s all dust and mortar
I’ve been praying for the rainfall
Hoping for a small cloud
But this far from you, girl
I should expect a drought

I’ve never been this long without you
Over twenty-five hundred miles
And forty hours with the fuel gauge in the red
You know I’m dying to be somebody
I wish you were here with me in the shotgun seat as we play these old
Cassettes

I’ve been looking for the river
As I’m headed to the ocean
But in this city now
The dry land is
Broken
I‘ve been searching for the answers
As I’m running from my
Doubts
But with the glass half empty
I should expect a drought

Oh-oh-oh, it’s gonna be a long dry summer 
And you are my
Water
Oh-oh-oh, it’s gonna be a long dry summer 
And you are my water

I never been to Manhattan
Well only one wintertime, on the low eastside, but I had no time to
Stop
We’re gonna go to New York City
I can’t wait ‘til I get
Home, you pack your clothes, and we’ll walk the promenade

I’ve been looking for the well
And I’m looking for the water
But in this city now
It’s all dust and mortar
I’ve been praying for
The rainfall
Hoping for a small cloud
I’m coming back to you, girl
And we’ll end this drought

Oh-oh-oh, it’s gonna be a long dry summer
And you are my water
Oh-oh-oh, it’s gonna be a long dry summer 
And you are my water
It’s gonna be a long, long, long
A long dry summer

Mmmm, you are my water
