No Clues: What Are These Song Lyrics #3

We heard a tribute band playing this song on New Year's Eve, one of my favorites from the 80's. It turned out to be a bit ironic (or appropriate) given that rain started falling - with that cryptic clue, can you piece the song together?

high
and
dry
in
the
long
hot
day
 
 
Lost
and
lonely
every
way
 
 
 
 
 
Got
flats
all
around
me
 
 
 
 
 
sky
up
above
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Guess
I
need
a
little
water
of
love
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I've
been
too
long
lonely
and
my
heart
feels
pain
Crying
out
for
some
soothing
rain
 
 
 
 
I
believe
I
have
taken
enough
 
 
 
 
Yes
I
need
a
little
water
of
love
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
water
of
love
deep
in
the
ground
 
 
 
But
there
ain't
no
water
here
to
be
found
 
some
day
baby
when
the
river
runs
free
 
 
It'll
carry
that
water
of
love
to
me
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There's
a
bird
up
in
a
tree
sitting
up
high
Just
a'waiting
for
me
to
die
 
 
 
 
If
I
don't
get
some
water
soon
 
 
 
I'll
be
dead
and
gone
in
the
afternoon
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Once
I
had
a
woman
I
could
call
my
own
Once
I
had
a
woman
Now
my
woman
she's
gone
Once
there
was
a
river
Now
There's
a
stone
 
You
know
it's
evil
when
you're
living
alone

These are fun quizzes. Guessing the words to a song you don't recognise just to see how many points you can get, then finding that the song is by a band you really like so you feel bad that hadn't heard of it. :)

More please!!!
