I am looking for the chords and lyrics to a '60's tune "A Little Road and a Stone to Roll", or maybe it is "Everybody's Got a Stone to Roll". CT

LITTLE ROAD AND A STONE TO ROLL
(John Stewart)

CHORUS:
Little road and a stone to roll
Little road and a stone to roll
Little road and a stone to roll
Ev'ry body needs a stone to roll

Ev'ry body needs a fire inside
Ev'ry body needs a dream to ride
Ev'ry body with a growing soul
Ev'ry body needs a stone to roll

[Repeat chorus]

Ev'ry body needs some old loose shoes
And we could all use a little good news
Ev'ry body with a sheet to fold
Ev'ry body needs a stone to roll

Ev'ry body needs a Carol King tune
Ev'ry body needs a little more room
'Cause ev'ry body digs their own deep hole
Ev'ry body needs a stone to roll

[Repeat chorus and fade]

Gordon Bok recently did a really nice version of this on his album "Return to the Land", which you can check out here.

Wasn't it written by Bob Stewart? I guess I don't think of something like that as "a sixties tune," even if it is.

If you are interested, The Association did a nice cut on this. It is on their album "Waterbeds in Trinidad!"

One of many great songs written by John Stewart.
A very interesting version of it was done by Canadian singer-songwriter, Tony Kosinec.
