    Throw my brain in a hurricane
    And the blind can have my eyes
    And the deaf can take both of my ears
    If they don't mind the size

    Reading today of the future shut down of a coal-fueled power plant in Kentucky,
    they stated that the coal came from the Paradise #9 Mine.

    In 1971, John wrote a song titled "Paradise" about the Peabody company
    in Kentucky.

    Thought I'd share it; a timely piece of work.



    " Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
    And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
    Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
    Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man."

    " When I die let my ashes float down the green river
    Let my soul roll on up to the rochester dam
    I'll be halfway to heaven with paradise waitin'
    Just five miles away from wherever I am."

    John Prine - Miller & Company (ca. 1992)

    John talks with Dan Miller about "The Missing Years" and "Falling From Grace" and performs "That's The Way That The World Goes 'Round."
