History of the Monongahela Railway




It's been a long time, since I been home.

It's been a long time, since I been home.

It's been a long time, since I been home.

And I a'int goin soon

No, I a'int goin back soon.



I was born in a coal camp, stars at my head 

And mountains as far as I could see.

Got to work every day

And I made a big pay

There was honey in the horn for me, 



And the coal dust blows, like a dark summer snow,

but I don't hear the roar of the tipple any more

or the whine of the trucks on the line.



Now the town's all gone, 

It's gone away.

The town's all gone,

It's gone away.

Now the town's all gone, 

It's gone away.

The people are straw, the wind has blowed away.



I was born in the holler that was lonesome and long,

And the sun didn't shine all the day

But the banders in the night and the stars big light

Was pleasures that I wanted to stay.

How could anybody know ?

That the next year or so,

We would all be a wanderin over mountain and plain

Tryin to plant our roots again.



It's been a long time, since I been home.

It's been a long time, since I been home.

It's been a long time, since I been home.

And I ain't goin soon;

No, I ain't goin back soon.
