Jacob's Well 
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Red Steagall and Danny Steagall

C G7
The oldest fires and souls of men who searched for wealth
Am F
Jacob found his gold in pure artesian wells
C G7
Settlers came and filled the town he built himself
Am G7
Jacob ruled his empire like a king

C G7
Then love for money took control of Jacob’s life
Am F
One tall Roman took control of Jacob’s wife
C G7
And in his arms she found the love she’d been denied
C G7 C
Katherine couldn’t live with Jacob’s grief

F G7
Young folks live in fear of Jacob’s well
Em Am
The old folks know the story but they’ll never tell
F C Am
Secrets hidden in the depths of hell
Dm G7 Am
And the ghostly forms that haunt the mounds of Jacob’s well

C G7
One hot night in late July so the story goes
Am F
Jacob followed Katherine as met her beau
C G7
And in the shadows as he watched their love affair unfold
Am G7
Some say Jacob sent their souls to hell

C G7
No one knows for certain just what happened then
Am F
The one called Roan and Katherine were never seen again
C G7
Jacob said they ran away to live in sin
Am G7 C
But the restless waters rage in Jacob’s well

Repeat #3

C G7
Every now and then some brave fool
Am F
On a moonlit night would try to prove the story’s true
C G7
About the ghostly forms do the things that lover do
Am C G7 C
On the rocks on the mounds of Jacob’s well

Repeat #3

Dm G7 Am
And the ghostly forms that never sleeps in Jacob’s well
