High Away Gone on NPR'S "Favorite Songs of 2015"

A song I wrote about Mountain Top Removal made it on NPR's Favorites list in the Country section! Check out the complete list HERE.

High Away and Gone

C. Woodsmith, C. Hartman

Going up on the mountain say

High away from the valley

Going up on the mountain Say

High away and gone X2

If you keep on digging the land

High away from the valley

Blow off a top and turn it to sand

High away gone

Massey's there to dole the draw

High away from the valley

But they'll give you a little then take the haul

High away and gone

Going up on the mountain say

High away from the valley

I'm going up on the mountain say

High away and gone X2

Well my brother what will you do

High away from the valley

When the land you love is blackened through

High away and gone

When the song you sang breaks your back

High away from the valley

When the lungs you breathe with turn to black

High away gone

Going up on the mountain say

High away from the valley

I'm going up on the mountain say

High away and gone X2

Oh my sister what will you say

High away from the valley

When coal won't buy your bread today

High away and gone

When the man you love is in the mine

High away from the valley

When black maria says its time

Going up on the mountain say

High away from the valley

I'm going up on the mountain say

High away and gone X2
