Song Description

This could be the greatest song ever written if you love music and you know where it comes from.

Lyrics

APRIL IS THE CRUELEST MONTH

The land was once not dirty with those machines and power tools
You could take a stroll without a worry
But progress had to come to this rural paradise
Now Brother Roy and Sister Joy wonder why

The people were told they?d benefit
From the increased technology
Was explained to them they could not lose
Well the stripminers are gone
Will the Appalachians see another dawn?
Will the bulldozer scars ever go away?

The reality is a gutted land
The poverty of a mountain man
Spring rains erode what has not sunk
And April is the cruelest month

The people won?t beg or borrow to improve their humble lives
They?re just proud they seen Jesus in the woods
Jackson Ridge and Johnson Hollow will never be the same
While businessmen don?t care who or what they lame
