To my good friend, Capt. Bob Reynolds.John Prine wrote a real fine song on the Green River. Here is the chorus.

And Daddy won't you take back to Muhlenberg County
Down by the Green River where paradise lay
Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're to late in asking
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away

to paraphrase: Captain, I am sorry to say
my secrets of Green River have faded away.
