aka Mr. Peabody's Coal Train recorded
by the Everly Brothers written by John Prine C
C When I
was a child my family would travel
to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
F C And
there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
many times that my memories are worn
daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
G7 C Down
by the Green River where Paradise lay
I'm sorry my son but you're too late in asking
Peabody's coal train has hauled it away Well
sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River To the
abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill Where
the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols But
empty pop bottles was all we would kill repeat
the coal company came with the world's largest shovel And
they tortured the timber and stripped all the land Well,
they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken Then
they wrote it all down as the progress of man repeat
#2 When I
die let my ashes float down the Green River Let my
soul roll on up to the Rochester dam I'll
be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waiting Just
five miles away from wherever I am repeat
