Six Feet Under Water

 

Written: 1974

Writers: David Jenneson, Alan Hovden, Peter Sinclair

Status: Recorded but unpublished.

Genre and Style: Rock ballad.

Comments: Dave: Six Feet Under Water is catchy, driving, haunted with feeling and has a rare simple elegance. First recorded by The Hans Staymer Band in 1974, it was overproduced and much of that feeling was lost. It was later recorded by the Alan Harlow band in a version much truer to the original and this is by far the superior interpretation.

 

I don’t know if I can hold it inside any longer

I don’t know if this feeling can get any stronger

It’s like the kind of a death

Where you’re right out of breath

Six feet

Six feet under water.

 

You know she’s cruel, uh huh

And I will never, never rise up again

You know she’s cruel, uh huh

And I will never, never rise up again

 

I’ve been told that I’d never be able to keep her

Tried to hold her but she only keeps pulling me deeper

It’s like my pride is a crown

And it’s driving me down

Six feet

Six feet under water

 

You know she’s cruel, uh huh

And I will never, never rise up again

You know she’s cruel, uh huh

And I will never, never rise up again

 

In a note I told her meet me down by the river

If she showed it was only to stand there and shiver

Because the chances are small

She heard me at all

Six feet

Six feet under water

 

You know she’s cruel, uh huh

And I will never, never rise up again

You know she’s cruel

And I will never, never rise up again
