Paradise
J. Prine (klr)
[D] When I was a child my [G] family would [D] travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my [A7] parents were [D] born
And there's a backward old town that's [G] often [D] remembered
So many times that my [A7] mem'ries are [D] worn
[D] And daddy, won't you take me back to [G] Muhlenberg [D] County
Down by the Green River where [A7] Paradise [D] lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but your [G] too late in [D] askin'
Mister Peabody's train has [A7] hauled it [D] away
[D] Well, sometimes we'd travel right [G] down the Green [D] River
To the abandoned old prison down [A7] by Adrie [D] Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd [G] shoot with our [D]
pistols
But empty pop bottles was [A7] all we would [D] kill
[D] And daddy, won't you take me back to [G] Muhlenberg [D] County
Down by the Green River where [A7] Paradise [D] lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but your [G] too late in [D] askin'
Mister Peabody's train has [A7] hauled it [D] away
[D] The coal company came with the [G] world's largest [D] shovel
And they tortured the timber and [A7] stripped all the [D] land
Well, they dug for the coal 'till the [G] land was [D] forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the [A7] progress of [D] man
[D] And daddy, won't you take me back to [G] Muhlenberg [D] County
Down by the Green River where [A7] Paradise [D] lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but your [G] too late in [D] askin'
Mister Peabody's train has [A7] hauled it [D] away
[D] When I die let my ashes float [G] down the Green [D] River
Let my soul roll on up to the [A7] Rochester [D] Dam
I'll be halfway to heaven with [G] Paradise [D] waiting
Just five miles away from where [A7] ever I [D] am
[D] And daddy, won't you take me back to [G] Muhlenberg [D] County
Down by the Green River where [A7] Paradise [D] lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but your [G] too late in [D] askin'
Mister Peabody's train has [A7] hauled it [D] away
