The Wonderful Soupstone v1

Dr. Hook

 FC
I swear you could taste the chicken and tomatoes
 FC
And the noodles and the marrowbone  
 FC
But it really wasn\'t nothing but some water and potatoes
 GC
And the wonderful, wonderful soupstone

 CFCGC
Hanging from a string in my mama\'s kitchen, back in the hard time days
 FC
Was a little ol\' stone \'bout the size of an apple,
 DG
it was smooth and worn and grey
 CFCGC
There wasn\'t much food in my mama\'s kitchen, so whenever things got tight
 FC
Mama boiled up some water, put in the stone and said
 DG
\"Let\'s have some soup tonight\"

Chorus:
 FC
And I swear you could taste the chicken and tomatoes
 FC
And the noodles and the marrowbone  
 FC
But it really wasn\'t nothing but some water and potatoes
 GC
And the wonderful, wonderful soupstone

 FCGC
It had been in the family for a whole lotta years, so we knew it was a nourishing thing
 FC
And I remember mama, as she stirred it in the water,
 DG
and we could all hear her sing
 CFCGC
\"It\'s a magical stone and as long as we got it, we\'ll never have a hungry night
 FC
Just add a little love to the wonderful soupstone
 DG
and everything will be alright\"

Chorus

 CFCGC
So it carried us all through the darkenin\' days till finally the sunshine came
 FC
And the soup stone started in a gatherin\' dust
 DG
but it hung there just the same
 CFCGC
But ever since then Lord the food\'s been plenty and every now and then I find
 FC
That momma in the kitchen with the wonderful soup stone
 DG
drifts across my mind
