A beach is the greatest place on earth……… Reply jmw June 22, 2010 at 4:10 pm When you did the best songs post I mentioned John Prine. This oil mess reminds me of this song. Paradise by John Prine When I was a child my family would travel Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born And there’s a backwards old town that’s often remembered So many times that my memories are worn. Chorus: And daddy won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re too late in asking Mister Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away Well, sometimes we’d travel right down the Green River To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill Where the air smelled like snakes and we’d shoot with our pistols But empty pop bottles was all we would kill. Repeat Chorus: Then the coal company came with the world’s largest shovel And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man. Repeat Chorus: 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 five miles away from wherever I am. Repeat Chorus: Reply Muhammad Goldstein June 22, 2010 at 6:11 pm Fucking BP..I hope they go bankrupt. Absolutely unreal that there are people out there who say “tough luck, accidents happen”..
