The second HOLY WATERS homemade video fest

As the dog days of summer come to a close, I am soothed by these renditions of “Cool Water,” the country-western song written by Bob Nolan in 1936 and made a hit by the Sons of the Pioneers in 1947-48. Nolan’s cowboy-narrator, parched for “cool, clear water” in the broiling desert heat, sings to Dan (his mule) about a mirage he sees, “Where the water’s running free / And it’s waiting there for me / And you.”
