Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more

Man he done come and gone Polluted all around There ain’t no river runnin’ No water can be found Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more

Fish ain’t swimmin’ Ain’t no fish around nowhere Fish ain’t swimmin’ Ain’t nobody seem to care

They botteled up and dammed it Choked it up and canned it Killed the life around it And stole it like a bandit Stone river, Water ain’t runnin’ no more

What used to be a river Now is just an empty site Ain’t no vegetation It’s just an agitation It don’t seem right

There ain’t no trees growin’ No animals are showin’ What used to be a stream Now is just a dream

Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ nowhere Stone river, Water ain’t runnin’ nowhere

The Man he done cut it off And moved it all around There ain’t no river runnin’ No water can’t be found Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more

They botteled up and dammed it Choked it up and canned it Killed the life around it And stole it like a bandit Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more

There ain’t no trees growin’ No animals are showin’ What used to be a stream Is now just a dream Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ nowhere

Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ nowhere Stone river, water ain’t runnin’ no more.
