Paradise  John Prine

Wh[D]en I was child my fam[G]ily would tr[D]avel
Down the western kentucky were my p[A]arents were b[D]orn
Theres a backward?s old town that [G]often reme[D]mbered
So many times that my me[A]mories are wo[D]rn
A[D]nd daddy wont you take my down to Mu[G]helberg cou[D]nty
down by the green river where pa[A]radise la[D]y
well im sorry my son but your to[G]o late in as[D]king
mr. Peabody?s coaltrain has ha[A]uled it aw[D]ay
Well sometimes we?d travel right down the green river
to the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
were the air smell like snakes we?d shoot with our pistols
but emty pop bootles was all we would kill
Well the coalcompany came with the world?s largest shovel
and the tortured the timber and stripped all the land
they dug for their coal until the land was forsaken
and they wrote it all down as the progress of man
When I die let my ashes fload down the green river
let my soul fload on up to the Rodchester dam
I?ll be half way to heaven with paradise waiting
just five miles away from whereever i?m am
Well thats it folks, Pretty Easy...??
Some of the words are probably misspelled
"Det er nok fordi jeg er dansker"
