For Steve

lyrics

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
