lyrics

well my mother and her father
live in the same county
and my dad's dad
he lives in one up north
and i can't help but to think of my own father
when i see that none of them speak anymore

well the factories spewed out poison
through the valley
and it gave my grandad cancer
in his blood
and when i heard my father cry
through the phone on a hot, june day
it made me feel like he was my own son

and i thought about that old green river valley
as i let my tears flow hard like the river

and sometimes i sit down by that dirty river
and if i lived there now,
more often times i would
and i tell her that i'll always come and see her
but she knows i'll never stay again for good

and i sit there in that old green river valley
as i feel my time pass by like the river

and when i'm old and come back
to the valley
i'll find both of my parents resting there
and though they're gone
i'll know my son
had known them
as i watch that valley wind blow through his hair

and i'll stand there in that old green river valley
and i'll watch my life go on like the river
i'll stand there in that old green river valley
and i'll let my life flow on like the river
