Wonderful Soup Stone Recorded by Bobby Bare Written by Shel Silverstein
G C G I swear you could taste the chicken and tomatoes C G And the noodles and the marrow bone C G But it really wadn't nothin' but some water and potatoes D7 G And the wonderful wonderful soup stone
Hangin' from a string in my momma's kitchen C G Back in the hard time days
Was a little ol' stone bout the size of an apple A7 D7 It was smooth and worn and gray
G There wadn't much food in my momma's kitchen C G So whenever things got tight C G Momma'd boil up some water put in the stone A7 D7 Say let's have some soup tonight
It'd been in the family for a whole lotta years C G So we knew it was a nourishin' thing
And I remember momma as she stirred it in the water A7 D7 And we could all hear her sing
G It's a magical stone and as long as we got it C G We'll never have a hungry night C G Just add a little love to the wonderful soup stone A7 D7 And every thing'll be all right
So it carried us all through the darkenin' days C G Till finally the sunshine came
And the soup stone started in a gatherin' dust A7 G But it hung there just the same
But ever since then Lord the food's been plenty C G And ever now and then I find C G That momma in the kitchen and the wonderful soup stone A7 D7 Drifts across my mind
Repeat #1 And again I'd taste...
D7 G We were nourished by the wonderful soup stone D7 G Oh the wonderful wonderful soup stone
