When I was a Child, my Family would travel
to western Kentucky, where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn
CHORUS
And daddy won't you take me back to Mulenberg county
Down by the Green River, where Paradise lay
Well I'm sorry my Son, but your to late in askin
Mr Peabody's coal train has hauled it away

Well sometimes we'd float right down by the Green River
To an abandoned old prison down by Atry 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.
John Prine.1971
