CATHERINE'S MAGIC STONE
Patty Griffin


The simple girl

A raggy dress

A dirty face

She's a mess

Flower on the wall

Waiting to dance

You know

She ain't got a chance

Catherine's magic stone


Only thing she calls her own

It makes her laugh

Seen her cry

I wonder why

Most of her time spent alone


She goes to work

Scouring the town

Searching for cans

Oh she ain't proud

She'd like to take

The world by the balls

String em' up

Laugh at em' all


Catherine's magic stone

The only thing she calls her own

Makes her laugh

Seen her cry

I wonder why

Most of her time spent alone


Her mind splits

With the full of the moon

And her eyes cross

When she's all out of booze

But don't be deceived

By what meets your eye

She knows how to get by


Catherine's magic stone

Only thing she calls her own

It's bigger than you or me

The sky or the sea

It's the world she calls her home

It's bigger than you or me

The sky or the sea

It's the world she calls

Her home
