      About "Kern River"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "Kern River"

      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
      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
