Kern River by Merle Haggard


I'll never swim Kern River again.

It was there that I met her.

It was there that I lost my best friend.

And now I live in the mountains.

I drifted up here with the wind.

And I may drown in still water

But I'll never swim Kern River again.

I grew up in an oil town

But my gusher never came in.

And the river was a boundary

Where my darlin' and I used to swim.

One night in the moonlight

The swiftness swept her life away.

And now I live on Lake Shasta

And Lake Shasta is where I will stay.

There's the South San Joaquin

Where the seeds of the dust bowl are found.

And there's a place called Mount Whitney

From where the mighty Kern River comes down.

Now it's not deep nor wide

But it's a mean piece of water my friend.

And I may cross on the highway

But I'll never swim Kern River again.

I'll never swim Kern River again.

It was there that I met her.

It was there that I lost my best friend.

And now I live in the mountains.

I drifted up here with the wind.

And I may drown in still water

But I'll never swim Kern River again.

Instrumental break.

I'll never swim Kern River again.

An' it was there that I met her.

It was there that I lost my best friend.

Now I live in the mountains.

I drifted up here with the wind.

And I may drown in still water

But I'll never swim Kern River again.
