I asked for cool water. She brought me gasoline.
I asked for cool water. She brought me gasoline.
That's the cruelest cold hearted woman I ever seen.

Got to the depot just when the manager said, "all aboard!"
Went to the depot and I was lookin' all across the board.
I said, "hey, friend, how long's that evenin' train been gone?"

I asked the driver, "sir, can a broke man please ride the blinds?"
I asked the driver, "sir, can a broke man please ride the blinds?"
He said, "buy your ticket, Joey. This train here ain;t none of mine."

I asked for cool water. She brought me gasoline.
I asked for cool water. She brought me gasoline.
That's the cruelest cold hearted woman I ever seen.
