I would like to dedicate this song to Destructionest Everywhere.

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

The coal company came with the world's largest shovel

They tortured the timber and stripped all the land

They dug for their coal till the land was forsaken

And wrote it all down as the progress of man.

Gene Zesch
