Paradise Ukulele Chords

When [D]I was a child my [G]family would [D]travel,
down to Western Kentucky where my [A7]parents were [D]born
And there’s a backwards old town that’s [G]often re[D]membered,
so many times that my [A7]memories are [D]worn.

And [D]daddy won’t you take me back to [G]Muhlenberg [D]County,
down by the Green River where [A7]Paradise [D]lay
Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re [G]too late in [D]asking,
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has [A7]hauled it a[D]way

Well, [D]sometimes we’d travel right [G]down the Green [D]River,
to the abandoned old prison down by [A7]Adrie [D]Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we’d [G]shoot with our [D]pistols,
but empty pop bottles was [A7]all we would [D]kill.

And [D]daddy won’t you take me back to [G]Muhlenberg [D]County,
down by the Green River where [A7]Paradise [D]lay
Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re [G]too late in [D]asking,
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has [A7]hauled it a[D]way

Then the [D]coal company came with the [G]world’s largest [D]shovel,
and they tortured the timber and [A7]stripped all the [D]land
Well, they dug for their coal till the [G]land was for[D]saken,
then they wrote it all down as the [A7]progress of [D]man.

And [D]daddy won’t you take me back to [G]Muhlenberg [D]County,
down by the Green River where [A7]Paradise [D]lay
Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re [G]too late in [D]asking,
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has [A7]hauled it a[D]way

When I [D]die let my ashes float [G]down the Green [D]River,
let my soul roll on up to the [A7]Rochester [D]dam
I’ll be halfway to Heaven with [G]Paradise [D]waitin’,
just five miles away from wher[A7]ever I [D]am.

And [D]daddy won’t you take me back to [G]Muhlenberg [D]County,
down by the Green River where [A7]Paradise [D]lay
Well, I’m sorry my son, but you’re [G]too late in [D]asking,
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has [A7]hauled it a[D]way
