Thread Name: Origins/Add Verses: Cool Water (Bob Nolan)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Cool Water: Missing verse
Actually, Mr. Happy, Joe is correct.
I have the same recording of Bob Nolan (the author) singing Cool Water, and they definitely sing:

Where the water's running free
And it's waiting there for me and you.'

I presume Bob Nolan wrote it hat way for the syllabic scansion of tree, free and me, although IMO 'you and me' sings better.
