Paradise
John Prine

Daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River, where Paradise lay
Well I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in askin’
Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away

In honor of Father’s Day, a song John Prine wrote for his father, and one of my father’s favorites

This grave house in southern Kentucky’s Muhlenberg County has a shed-style roof and the tombstones are placed outside, demonstrating that the main concern here is protecting the grave rather than the stone.
