Another line from John Prine's 'Paradise' - I'm sorry my son but you're too late in asking, Mr. Peabody's coal train has hauled it away.
From 'Come By the Hills' - The cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.
Remember me at the close of a long, long day.
England hath taken me.
Jean Ritchie's Now is the cool of the day.
Jean Ritchie: No more will black waters run over my land.
Jean Ritchie: The L&N don't stop here any more.
Pretty nearly anything else by Jean Ritchie.
My heart breaks as you take your long journey.
