Letra de Paradise - John Prine

Letra de canción de Paradise de John Prine lyrics

When I was a childMy family would travelDown to Western KentuckyWhere my parents were bornAnd there's a backwards old townThat's often rememberedSo many times, That my memories are worn(Chorus)And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenburg CountyDown by the Green RiverWhere Paradise lays.Well I'm sorry my son,But you're too late in askingMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it awayWell sometimes we'd travelRight down the Green RiverTo the abandoned old prisonDown by Avery hillWhere the air smelled like snakesWe'd shoot with our pistolsBut empty pop bottlesWas all we would killhttp://www.coveralia.com/letras/paradise-john-prine.php
(Chorus)And the coal company cameWith the world's largest shovelAnd they tortured the timberAnd stripped all the landWell they dug for their coal'Til the land was forsakenAnd they wrote it all downAs the progress of man(Chorus)When I die let my ashesFloat down the Green RiverLet my soul roll on upTo the Rochester DamI'll be halfway to heavenWith Paradise waitingJust five miles awayFrom wherever I am.(chorus)
