lyrics

I knew a stone woman who once knew me
I married stone woman down by the sea
her will so strong it would not be bent
a love so deep it could not be spent

The summer sun can't stop the fall
one moonless night I heard the call
with silent steps I left my home
I left stone woman all alone

I'm stone woman
you can't break me
I'll wait for you right by the sea
you'll come back and here I'll be
I can love you endlessly

My legs were strong, I roamed the world
in every town was a green-eyed girl
sometimes I dreamt of the icy blue
gaze of the woman I once knew

South was whiskey
East was gin
I never thought to go home again
my heart was hardened by snow and wind
after twenty long years I forgot my sin

I'm stone woman
you can't break me
I'll wait for you right by the sea
you'll come back
and here I'll be
I can love you endlessly

One August day I come off the track
couldn't see that I'd been brought back
the home I'd left upon the shore
looked like so many I'd seen before

Alone she was with sky and sand
against the world she'd made her stand
she never asked me why or where
or how I'd come to leave here there

I'm stone woman
and you can't break me
I'll wait for you right by the sea
you'll come back and here I'll be
I can love you endlessly

I held her in my arms that day
told her I'd come back to stay
she whispered she was still my wife
smiled sweet as she held the knife

My blood fell quickly to the ground
she held my hand as I lay down
around me cold and darkness grew
I heard her crying, I love you

I'm stone woman
you can't break me
I'll wait for you right by the sea
you'll come back and here I'll be
I can love you endlessly
