J. J. Cale – Stone River

” Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more
What used to be a river, now is just an empty site”

U.S.A.:  J. J. Cale: “Stone River”


Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
Man he done cut if off and moved it all around
There ain’t no river runnin’ / No water can’t be found
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
Fish ain’t swimmin’ / Ain’t no fish around nowhere
Fish ain’t swimmin’ / Ain’t nobody seem to care
They botteled up and dammed it / Choked it up and jammed it
Killed the life around it and stole it like a bandit
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
What used to be a river / Now is just an empty site
Ain’t no vegetation / It’s just an agitation
It don’t seem right
There ain’t no trees a growin’  / No animals are showin’
What used to be a stream / Now is just a dream
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ nowhere
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
Man he done cut it off and moved it all around
There ain’t no river runnin’ / No water can’t be found
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
They botteled up and dammed it / Choked it up and jammed it
Killed the life around it and stole it like a bandit
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
There ain’t no trees a growin’ / No animals are showin’
What used to be a stream / Is now just a dream
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ nowhere
Stone river / Water ain’t runnin’ no more
