And the coal trucks come a-runnin'
And their big wheels a-hummin'
Who hid the spies who were lookin'
And this road she is a woman
Cut from the sides of these mountains
Who are lonely even here in paradise
And I'll sing my song ~ and I'll sing my song

She still holds her torch out
Yearning for a freedom that still eludes them
Here on the New Jersey shoreline in the
But some mendicants wander off into a cathedral
And there their prayers are still whispered
In the land of my sojourn
Nobody tells you when you get born here
And how you'll never belong here
And I'll be lonely for my home

All those drain pipes are drippin' out the last Sons Of Thunder
Were belching back this city's best answer
And the countryside was pocked
Thrown up on the rotting sideboards of
When the old world started dying
And I'll sing His song, and I'll sing His song

And I will sing His song
