Mr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
« on: April 08, 2020, 08:36:06 PM »
Just read that John Prine passed away on April 7th from coronavirus complications. I really like one song he did about the Appalachian coal-producing region.

From the song "Paradise" by John Prine

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
