from John Prine's "Paradise" (1971):

These are some of the most vividly descriptive words I know. I was driving through western Kentucky a couple years ago, and I just had to hike a trail I found near the Green River. It was in Mammoth Cave National Park, high above the river in a lush, overgrown area that has sinkholes all around. Yes, it DID smell like snakes there and I was halfway scared out of my wits to walk alone, but it was beautiful.
