about

Written by soul singer and songwriter William Bell. This tune was his debut release on Stax in 1961.

Notable covers include Otis Redding in 1965 and The Byrds in 1968 on Sweetheart of the Rodeo, the first version I heard and the starting point for this arrangement.

Bell is still active and released a fantastic album in 2017, This is Where I Live.

lyrics

In the beginning you really loved me
But I was blind and I could not see
But when you left me oh, how I cried
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry

I was a playboy, I could not be true
I couldn't believe I really loved you
But when you left me oh, how I cried
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry

In the beginning you really loved me
But I was blind and I could not see
But when you left me oh, how I cried
You don't miss our water till your well runs dry
You don't miss our water till your well runs dry
