Kern River
Written and recorded by Merle Haggard

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
Em F
I drifted up here with the wind
And I may drown in still water
G7 C
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 darling and I used to swim

One night in the moonlight
The swiftness swept here life away

And now I live on Lake Shasta and
G7 C
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
G7 C
But I'll never swim Kern River again

Repeat #1
