Cool Money In The Bank

At a fence beside the pasture
Sits my Daddy’s water tank
He put there forty years ago
Cool money in the bank

I played there as a button
Beside new yearling calves
It cooled the humid summers
And gave it’s share of baths

The pipe that feeds the water
Flowed cool out of the ground
And gave us clean fresh water
With peaceful rhythmic sound

And sometimes in the evening
Young cows will stand and stare
There deeply as the water runs
Then stay to drink their share

The place depends on me now
And I’ve come to love the tank
Built to last by a fathers hands
Cool money in the bank
