Water From The Stone
The memory still chills to the bone
The night that his momma died
They played “I Come to the Garden Alone”
But daddy’s eyes stayed dry
When I looked around that night I saw
So many teardrops fall
If tears are words the heart can’t say
Daddy’s heart never spoke at all
But momma got water from the stone
“She said it’s gotta stop, drink one more drop
and I’m gone
She put tears in the eyes of the rock that we leaned on
Momma got water from the stone
You might say it opened daddy’s eyes
That open suitcase on the bed
I guess all of momma’s soft things said everything
That needed to be said
That’s the night daddy found out
You can cry and still be strong
The moon in the sky was the only moonshine
He had from that moment on
