Verse

C7 We choked on straight tap water well I'm gEonna have to try the real thing I C7took your laugh by the collar and A7it knew not to sG7wing. C7 Anytime I tried an honest job well the Etill had a hole and ha-ha We lC7aughed about payin' rent 'cause the cA7ounty jails they're G7free.

Chorus

Deep Water, Deep Water Senseless Denial I went down like a rag doll shooken and shy Deep Water, Deep Water Senseless Denial I went down like a rag doll rat of a child

Verse

Well King rat has me on his list again I can never be on the fence again I found out it's all loud Open like an organ and it talk, talk, talk, talk again he promised me that when I cheated him But I could open my eye well... lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again.

Chorus

Deep Water, Deep Water This Senseless Denial I got fed like a fish, full of open smiles Blue Water, Deep Water Oh Senseless Denial I got fed like a fish on the cardboard smiles
