Son Run To The Spring Recorded by Cal Smith Written by Don Wayne
G C G Daddy was working on the pipeline up in Pittsburg D7 G Brother was off in Asia fightin' some fool war C G Late one night momma came down with a real fierce hurting D7 G We had no phone and the doctor lived too far
C G I said momma I reckon I'd best go fetch the neighbor D7 G She said I'll be all right there ain't no need C G But she kept on gettin' worse instead of better D7 G With a feverish look she pleaded up at me
C G She said son run to the spring and get some water C D7 To cool your momma's parched and thirsting lips G C G Cause I believe some good cool clear spring water D7 G Will make this awful fever lose its grip
C G I said momma there's good cold water in the icebox D7 G I fetched it up fresh late this afternoon C G She said son now you be good and mind your momma D7 G Cause that water in the icebox just won't do
C G So I ran down to the spring to fetch some water C D7 She was crying as I softly shut the door G C G And when I got back to the house with good clear water D7 G D7 My momma wasn't thirsty any more
G C G Through the years I've come to understand and value D7 G The courage in my momma's gentle soul C G And how she chose to bare her cross alone and spare me D7 G From watchin' the grim reaper take his toll
C G She said son run to the spring and fetch some water C D7 She was crying as I softly shut the door G C G Now she's gone where there'll always be good cool water D7 C G And she'll never thirst for anything no more
