Track Name: Stone In The River
There's a stone in the river, being washed pure and clean.
Roll it down to the ocean, roll it round til its free

Walking down through the high grass, and the year was at my back.
I'm always looking for a reason to run.
Felt that old familiar calling, and the day was lying down.
So I turned my face away from the sun.

There's a stone in the river being washed pure and clean,
Roll it down to the ocean, roll it round til its free.
Won't you stand here beside me, won't you come to the shore.
We will wade in the water, we won't wonder any more.

Always tried to live a good life, always turned the other cheek.
Oh her hair was sweet as summer rain.
And I was waiting in the morning, and the door was open wide.
I never meant to cause her any pain, any pain.

There's a stone...

There's a name unrecorded, there's a voice forever gone.
Though it sings through the ages, I'm still haunted by the song.

There's a stone in the river, being washed pure and clean....
