Track Name: People of Stone
This is a public service announcement to all you beer makers on the west coast. Bring us your tired barley, your weary grains, your huddled masses yearning for good brew. We've got a home for you...

This is a song for the people of Stone
You need to find a new home
Why don't you find a new home

I'll tell you right now on this microphone
You need to plant your feet
where our water is sweet

You're way out west where the coyotes roam
You need to move your brew
we've got a home for you

Take a seat here on your mountain throne
and let us pour you a beer...

Hey,
You need to find a home here in TN
And I know
You will see, all you people of Stone
Don't go it Alone
Track Name: A Stone in East Tennessee
I flew into McGhee-Tyson
And walked out to my rental car
Threw my suitcase in the trunk
Turned the ignition and headed off

I pulled out onto the parkway
heading for that Knoxville square
but in my rear view mirror
I caught a glimpse of something rare

I turned the car around
and aimed it at that Smoky sky
Hiking deep into the mountains
I stumbled on a wondrous sight

Well there's a stone (there's a stone)
In East Tennessee
If you venture in to these hills
And over these streams
I may be out of my head
And many miles from my home
But you can keep your Miller and your Bud,
Cause I’ve found a Stone

This stone that I stumbled on
is far down where there aint no trail
You’ve got to wind around the waters
To a quarry where the night winds wail

But if you make the journey
you will be glad you came around the bend
Cause this Stone may be a bastard
But in our town we call it a friend

Well there's a stone (there's a stone)
In East Tennessee
If you venture in to these hills
And over these streams
I may be out of my head
And many miles from my home
But you can keep your miller and your bud,
Cause I’ve found a Stone
