We Shall Overcome – Dr. Martin Luther King

So now we are taking our history lessons from folk songs. lol There are thousands of songs about drinking, cheating, divorce are we somehow to take our history from them also. lol

Coal companies didn’t take down the union, the union took itself down, they were their own worst enemy.

Think what you want, but the truth is you don’t know crap about the coal industry and how they operate, all you do is repeat the enviro’s spoon feed propaganda.

The West Virginia Hills – West Virginia’s State Song

words by Ellen King and music by H.E. Engle

  Oh, the West Virginia hills! How majestic and how grand,
    With their summits bathed in glory, Like our Prince Immanuel's Land!
    Is it any wonder then, That my heart with rapture thrills,
    As I stand once more with loved ones On those West Virginia hills?
    Oh, the hills, beautiful hills, How I love those West Virginia hills!
    If o'er sea o'er land I roam, Still I'll think of happy home,
    And my friends among the West Virginia hills.

    Oh, the West Virginia hills! Where my childhood hours were passed,
    Where I often wandered lonely, And the future tried to cast;
    Many are our visions bright, Which the future ne'er fulfills;
    But how sunny were my daydreams On those West Virginia hills!
    Oh, the West Virginia hills! How unchang'd they seem to stand,
    With their summits pointed skyward To the Great Almighty's Land!
    Many changes I can see, Which my heart with sadness fills;
    But no changes can be noticed In those West Virginia hills.
    Oh, the West Virginia hills! I must bid you now adieu.
    In my home beyond the mountains I shall ever dream of you;
    In the evening time of life, If my Father only wills,
    I shall still behold the vision Of those West Virginia hills.
