The mother smiles at the boy
And dies of White Death

Coal still yawns in the hills of
Johnstown, Pennsylvania

Later the boy is told what
Happened to her - He will not

Let them take her away in
The horse drawn hearse

At night he sneaks outside
To chop down its wheels

With a blue axe - The boy
Feels the gaze of his mother

Coal still yawns in the hills of
Johntown, Pennsylvania
