Morning Star

from The Forgotten

Tell me where are you going
Tell me where have you been
I’ve been ‘round the mountain
And I’ve come back again
Morning Star oh, Morning Star

I ain’t going to Harlan
I ain’t going again
For there’s no more Black Diamond
And there’s no more L & N
Morning Star oh, Morning Star

If you see someone coming
Don’t you ask where they’ve been
For they’ve worn down the mountain
And they’ve torn down the wind
Morning Star oh, Morning Star

If you see someone going
Don’t you ask what they saw
For there’s no more deep mining
On the Cumberland Plateau
Morning Star oh, Morning Star

Tell me where are you going
Tell me where have you been
I’ve been ‘round the mountain
And I’ve come back again
Morning Star oh, Morning Star

Morning Star oh, Morning Star
Morning Star oh, Morning Star
