Step Stone I stood on my step stone when school days were o'er Longed for the time to go by Now it is gone and I stand here tonight On this, my old step stone at home. chorus: Goodbye to my step stone, Goodbye to my home God bless the ones that I leave with a sigh. Fields will be whitened and I will be gone To ramble this wide world alone. It's hard to be parted from those that we loved When reverses in fortunes have come The world's strongest heartstrings are broken in twain With the absence of loved ones and home. I stand on my step stone at evenin' time now The wind rushes by with a moan Now it is gone and I stand here tonight On this, my old step stone and home. From Bascom Lamar Lunceford RG
