D                                 G               D
When I was a child my family would travel
                                                         A7               D
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
                                                          G     D
And theres a backwards old town thats often remembered
                                     A7                D
So many times that my memories are worn

CHORUS
D                                                        G              D
And Daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenburg County
                                                A7         D
Down by the Green River where Paradise lay
                                                    G      D
Well I'm sorry my son but your too late in asking
                                            A7       D
Mr Peabody's coal train has hauled it away


D                                              G                    D
Well sometimes we'd travel right down the green river
                                                   A7         D
To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
                                                               G
     D
Where the air smelt like snakes that we'd shoot with our pistols
                                         A7              D
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill

REPEAT CHORUS
D                                                      G
D
Then the coal company came with the worlds largest shovel
                                                    A7                D
And they tortured the timbers and stripped all the land
                                                   G               D
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
                                                   A7            D
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man


REPEAT CHORUS
D                                           G                     D
When I die, let my ashes float down the Green River
                                           A7           D
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
                                             G        D
I'll be halfway to heaven with paradise waiting
                                        A7         D
Just five miles away from wherever I am

REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE
