DWIGHT YOAKAM I Said (Paradise Reprise)

Lyrics From thetechnologylife DWIGHT YOAKAM I Said (Paradise Reprise) Lyrics, singer by DWIGHT YOAKAM

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

And daddy won’t me 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 Gadry Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes, we’d shoot off pistols
Ahh, but empty pop bottles is all we would kill

And daddy won’t me 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

Well, the coal company 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 the ‘Progress Of Man’

So 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 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

Ohh, 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 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
