Check to make sure the pilot is burning bright blue not wavy yellow, if it is wavy yellow then clean the pilot or tap it with a screwdriver while allowing gas to flow. Then try it if still not ok then I would think either the thermocouple is defective most likely or less likely the gas valve is defective.

thanks for the help....come to find out we had lost power and there are two sensors on top of the water heater at the chimney that if the power goes out when the water heater is running it trips these two sensors and will not let the pilot light stay on....thanks again for any and all of you who reply to this....
