Lyrics

Bone Dry
by Christopher Cook

Don’t poke the embers
And send those sparks to flight
Pull some stones around the fire
On the picket line tonight

Bone dry – bone dry
You can hear the branches snap
As you walk by

I used to swim in a creek
Throw a bucket down a well
Now all I have is a small canteen
For this trip through hell

Bone dry – bone dry
Your tongue is stuck to the roof of your mouth
There’s no tear for your eye
Bone dry

I thought one day I’d save you
Ridin’ up on a big white steed
But there you were holding out a cup
In my hour of need

Bone dry – bone dry
You can hear the branches snap
When you walk by
Bone dry – bone dry
