GREEN ROLLING HILLS
The green rolling hills of West Virginia
Are the nearest place to heaven that I know
Though the times are sad and drear, and I cannot linger here
They will keep me and never let me go.
My daddy said, "Don't never be a miner,
A miner's grave is all you'll ever own.
Never have a dime to spare, hard times everywhere
Now these times are the worst I've ever known."
I'll move away into some crowded city,
In a Northern factory town you'll fine me there.
Though I leave my heart behind, I will never change my mind
For this troubled life is more than I can bear.
