lyrics

Who’ll fetch the water?
will it be your great grand-daughter
my darling
who’ll fetch the water?

What will be it’s course
from the source how will it find us
my darling
what’ll be the course?

and who will call the rain
feel it fallin’ to our skin
from a welling deep within
who’ll call the rain?

and who’ll strike the drum
when our thundering heartbeat needs it
when the feet gotta pray it down
who’ll beat the ground?

who will speak in truth
and where will they walk it, show us
how my darling
who’ll sow the truth

and where from will it bloom
to the story as we shape it
for each other, brother sister
what we choose

this breath we been given
this life we are tending
this garden we are seeding
for the ones yet to come

Oh who will fetch the water
will it be your great grand-daughter
my darling
who’ll fetch the water?

I’ll fetch the water
And I will be the course
and I will call the rain
I will call the rain
