I Said (Paradise Reprise) Lyrics

Artist: Dwight Yoakam
Album: Dwight's Used Records

When I was a boy my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
To a lost little town there thats often remembered
So many times that those memory drew warn

Daddy won't you take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but your too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal trains hauled it away

Well sometimes we travel right down the green river
To the abandoned old prison down by Gadry Hill.
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot off pistols
But empty pop bottles is all we would kill

Daddy won't you take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay
He said i'm sorry my son but your too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away

Well the coal compny' came with the worlds largest shovel
They tortured the timber and stripped all of the land
They dug for their coal til the ground was forsaken
Then wrote it all down as the Progress Of Man

And daddy won't you take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but your too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal trains hauled it away

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 5 miles away from wherever I am

Please daddy won't you take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but your too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away

He said I'm sorry my son but your too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away
