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.
