It was a case of unsolved mystery
jamie and trevor makin history
johnson family makin good
magic creek rock in the wood
signs in a stone to summon luck
magic rock helped them to make a buck
nature walk, magic rock, magic rock, magic rock

– Lyrics by Drogo

‘Magic Rock’ Punk Rock Karaoke version on Audiomack

inspired by a true story, told by ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ the show:

“On Saturday, May 14, 1988, thirteen-year-old Jamie Parks and his friend, Trevor Johnson, went into the woods in Washington State near the Canadian border and found a bizarre rock with strange, cryptic, alien-like drawings on it. Trevor told his parents, Steve and Pattie, about their discovery. At the time, the Johnsons were struggling to pay the bills and risking everything on a small dress shop that was opening in a new mall. Pattie took a second job as a receptionist to help pay for their rent, while Steve worked as a prison corrections officer. She later quit her job to open the store; however, this backfired when construction on it fell behind. After learning of the rock, Steve hiked to the spot with Trevor and was also interested in it. Just two days later, the Johnsons’ luck began to change for the better.”
