"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.
Lyrics: 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"
