    MY DADDY THE KERN RIVER AND ME

    When I was just a little girl
    My daddy said it's time
    To show you where I go to think
    on a favorite river of mine.

    But first you have to promise me
    that no one else will know
    Where this secret place is
    Where nobody else goes.



    We stood upon a rock that lies
    just over the roaring white waters.
    That's so very hard to get to and
    that's why no others bother.

    The river, called The Kern River has
    always been our favorite spot
    To go and think, and enjoy the peace
    And we went there quite alot.



    Some day I hope to go back to the
    river where daddy took me.
    And stand upon that same old rock
    and dream of how things use to be.

    The Kern River holds a memory of
    the first man I ever loved.
    And now I've found another man that
    I am sure was sent from above.

    I LOVE YOU DADDY
