“You never miss the water ’til the well runs dry …”
Cool Water … Many Interpretations
Most artists do Cool Water ‘straight up’.
Nothing wrong with that.
But there’s a few interpretations that caught my ear.
Hard to beat how beautifully The Sons of the Pioneers do this /1961
Dale Evans intro? Husband Roy Rogers was one of the
founding members of the Sons of the Pioneers back in the 1930’s.
Possibly the most popular of modern interpretations:
Joni Michell and Willie Nelson / 1988
Jimmie Rodgers with his great voice /1959
The Browns. Their unique and wonderful sound / 1960
Burl does it straight up / 1961
But oh so nicely.
This song was made for Walter / 1964
The Sons do a wonderful job / 1992
Teresa Brewer? Who knew!? / 1967
Nicely done Johnny / 1969
Fleetwood Mac. Really / 1982
A powerful and poignant interpretation.
Johnny knew his time was up / 2010
Hope you enjoy these.
