                The Wonderful Soupstone (Shel Silverstein)

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


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

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

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