The Wonderful Soupstone v1  Dr. Hook

I sw[F]ear you could taste the c[C]hicken and tomatoes
And the n[F]oodles and the marrowbone  [C]
But it re[F]ally wasn\'t nothing but some w[C]ater and potatoes
And the w[G]onderful, wonderful s[C]oupstone


H[C]anging from a string in my m[F]ama\'s k[C]itchen, b[G]ack in the hard time d[C]ays
Was a little ol\' stone \'bout the s[F]ize of an a[C]pple,
it was sm[D]ooth and worn and g[G]rey
There w[C]asn\'t much food in my m[F]ama\'s k[C]itchen, so when[G]ever things got t[C]ight
Mama b[F]oiled up some water, p[C]ut in the stone and said
\"L[D]et\'s have some soup ton[G]ight\"
Chorus:
And I sw[F]ear you could taste the c[C]hicken and tomatoes
And the n[F]oodles and the marrowbone  [C]
But it re[F]ally wasn\'t nothing but some w[C]ater and potatoes
And the w[G]onderful, wonderful s[C]oupstone

It had been in the family for a w[F]hole lotta y[C]ears, so we k[G]new it was a nourishing t[C]hing
And I remember mama, as she st[F]irred it in the w[C]ater,
and [D]we could all hear her s[G]ing
\"It\'s a m[C]agical stone and as l[F]ong as we g[C]ot it, we\'ll n[G]ever have a hungry n[C]ight
Just a[F]dd a little love to the w[C]onderful soupstone
and e[D]verything will be alr[G]ight\"

Chorus

So[C] it carried us all through the d[F]arkenin\' d[C]ays till f[G]inally the sunshine c[C]ame
And the soup stone started in a g[F]atherin\' d[C]ust
but it h[D]ung there just the s[G]ame
But e[C]ver since then Lord the f[F]ood\'s been p[C]lenty and e[G]very now and then I f[C]ind
That m[F]omma in the kitchen with the w[C]onderful soup stone
d[D]rifts across my m[G]ind
