Oh, 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
I may drown in the 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 used to swim

One night in the moonlight
The swiftness swept her life away
And now i live on lake shasta
And lake shasta is where i will stay

There's the great 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

But now 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

Oh, 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
