Lyrics of Kern River

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
Well 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
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 cross on the highway but I'll never swim Kern River
Again
