emmylou harris – kern river lyrics

i’ll never swim ker 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 use to swim.

one night in the moonlight
the swiftness swept her live 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 i first 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 i first 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.
