Merle Haggard - Kern River

Merle Haggard
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.
