John Fogerty. Paradise

John Fogerty (Credence Clearwater) and the Blue Ridge Rangers cover the John Prine classic.

Lyrics excerpt.

“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

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.”
