This one is indirectly about coal...without the coal there would have been no rolling mills in Middletown...about 30 minutes from me. (AK Steel Formerly Armco) Tom T. Hall was from northeastern KY, but his family must have moved to Indiana. When he came home from the war, home was Connersvill, IN, which is 30 minutes in the opposite direction of Middletown from me.

This one is good too...

Great lyrics...
Great poem...
Great Art work on this video...very fitting that miner would shine the light onto the city. Isn't that how it really is?
