When I was a child my family would travel
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered

Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"
Well, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols

Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"
Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken

Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"
When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
I'll be halfway to Heaven with paradise waitin'

Down by the green river where paradise lay?"
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away"
