Paradise Lyrics

Artist: Dwight Yoakam
Album: Dwight's Used Records

When I was a boy my family would travel
Inta' Western Kentucky where my parents were born
To a lost little town there thats often remembered
So many times that my memory drew warn
And daddy won't ya take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but yer 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 a gray (Raft?) *
Where the air smelled like snakes an' we'd shoot off pistols
Ahh but empty pop bottles is all we would kill
And daddy won't ya take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where paradise lay
He said i'm sorry my son but yer too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away
Welll the coal compny' came with the worlds largest shovel
They tortured the timber and stripped all of the land
Lord they dug for their coal til the ground was forsaken
Then wrote it all down as a progess'n mine
So daddy won't ya take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but yer 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
Ohhh... and daddy won't ya take me back to Mulingburg County
Down by the green river where Paradise lay
He said I'm sorry my son but yer too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away
He said I'm sorry my son but yer too late in askin'
Mr. Peabodys coal train has hauled it away
Oh Mr. Peabodys' coal train has hauled it away.
