You can find McCutcheon lyrics at John's website, which has a very nice URL: http://folkmusic.com.
It's from an early album, Gone, Gonna Rise Again (1987).
The Young Ones Don't Remember
(words & music by John McCutcheon)
He raised a knarled finger, “There’s the place we used to meet
“Where old John L. would beller, bring each miner to his feet
“And the boys would dream about the day they’d each be underground
“And the greenbacks flowed like Paint’s Creek through the town”
“I remember back in ‘29, times was hard back then
“They called us everything back then from outlaws to ‘damn reds!’
“Then the times got bad again and they swallowed all the lies
