Angela Easterling - Johnstown, Pennsylvania Lyrics


Was May of 1889, when Greed did draw a sad, sad fine
They say the Devil came to dine, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
From mountain high, that river ran, Held by the weary South Fork Dam
She made a pretty lake for the richest man, Who played in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
I would be 20 in the fall. The Miller's son for me did call
He kissed me by the Miner's Hall, that day in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

We heard a roar, like a mighty train. The waters surged, the dam did break
Houses and trees tossed in its wake, Headed for Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
My sweetheart would not let me drown. He pushed me to some higher ground,
But he was gone, when I turned ‘round, Gone from Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
I grabbed some timber, held on tight. The wreckage tossed me left and right.
"Oh God, I'm scared, I'm scared to die” And to leave Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

I reached up to that light above, My body warmed by pure, pure Love
I turned into a snow white Dove, and flew o'er Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
In one brief hour, that dreadful day, 2200 swept away.
And a city street was their watery grave, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
This Earth won't bow to will of Man. She's governed by another Hand.
Please heed Her warnings while you can! Remember Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
