"Horse To The Water" is a song by Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, from Holland's album Small World, Big Band. The song is notable for being George Harrison's last performance on a record, George having recorded lead vocals mere weeks before his death in November 2001. However, Harrison just did vocals for he was too weak from battling cancer to play guitar. The song was co-written by George and his son, Dhani. The song's publisher was listed as "R.I.P. Music Ltd," one last example of Harrison's wry sense of humour.

You can take a horse to the water
but you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no

A friend of mine in so much misery
Some people sail through life,but he has struck a reef
I said 'hey man let's go out and get some wisdom'
But first he turned on me, then he turned off his nervous system

You take a horse to water but
you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no
You can have it all layed/staked out in front
of you but it still don't make you think
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Someone I love is gotta problem
Some people thirst for truth, but he would like a drink
I said 'Hey man this could turn out to be risky'
He said 'everything's ok' as he downed another bottle of whiskey

There's a preacher out there warned me about Satan
Could be that he knows him
Cause' He acts like he's possessed
I said 'Hey man let's hear about God realisation
For a change'
he said "We ain't got time for that
First you must hear the evils of fornication"
