[Intro]
G C G G D G G C G G D G F G

[Verse 1]
G C GWhen I was a child my family would travel
D GDown to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
G C GAnd there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
G D GSo many times that my memories are worn
[Verse 2]
G C GWell, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
G D GTo the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
G C GWhere the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols
G D GBut empty pop bottles was all we would kill.
[Chorus]
G C GAnd daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
G D GDown by the Green River where Paradise lay
G C GWell, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
G D GMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
[Interlude] G C G G D G [Verse 3]
G C GThen the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
G D GAnd they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
G C GWell, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
G D GThen they wrote it all down as the progress of man
[Chorus]
G C GAnd daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
G D GDown by the Green River where Paradise lay
G C GWell, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
G D GMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
[Interlude] G C G G D G G C G G D G F G [Verse 4]
G C GWhen I die let my ashes float down the Green River
G D GLet my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
G C GI'll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin'
G D GJust five miles away from wherever I am
[Chorus]
G C GAnd daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
G D GDown by the Green River where Paradise lay
G C GWell, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
G D GMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
G D GMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
G D GMr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away
