Intro

G

GWhen I was a child my Cfamily would traGvel Down to Western Kentucky where myD parents were Gborn And there's a backwards old town that'Cs often rememGbered So many times that Dmy memories are Gworn

Chorus

GAnd daddy won't you take me back to CMuhlenberg CouGnty Down by the green river Dwhere paradise Glay? Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're Ctoo late in asGking Mister Peabody's coal train hasD hauled it Gaway 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

Chorus

Then 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

Chorus

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 waitin' Just five miles away from wherever I am

Chorus
