Paradise

Lyrics

When I was a child my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn
full lyrics
When I was a child my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
So many times that my memories are worn

Definitely John Prine authored song. From his very 1st self titled album. Cash's is 1of many cover's.

Love Johnny Cash, but John Prine, who wrote this song, presents a chilling rendition on one of his early albums.

The lyrics listed are not those of "Paradise."

The story of flux, very comparable to the Eagle "The Last Resort" from Hotel California: Just much more personal.

You have to hear Prine's version. It's a must.

Written by John Prine, a damn fantastic song, hymn, anthem. Still believe I like John Prine's version better, though the starkness to Cash's has something to it that I can't quite place.
