Bruised Orange album at
John Prine's, "Hello In There"
The Lyrics:
John and Linda live in Omaha
And Joe is somewhere on the road
We lost Davy in the Korean War
I still don't know what for
Omaha, Nebraska

John Prine's, "Paradise"
The Lyrics:
When I was a child, my family would travel
Down to Western Kentucky, where my parents were born
And there's a backwards old town, that's often remembered
So many times, that my memories are worn

And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where Paradise lay
Muhlenberg County, in western Kentucky (and a defunct town called Paradise)
