Goodbye my Appalachia, I'll see you in my dreams
I'll miss the wind in the sycamore tree
but I know it won't miss me

"So long, farewell," no friends will say
as I leave a trail of steam.
Those steel wheels will pull, though my heart tries to slow
this speeding coal machine,
this speeding coal machine.

You sank into the moonlight
but your wedding ring still shines.
Another round for the bar, god knows where you are -
you're hers 'til the end of time.

"So long, farewell," no friends will say
as I leave a trail of steam.
Those steel wheels will pull, though my heart tries to slow
this speeding coal machine,
this speeding coal machine.

Oh I can't undo what I have done -
fool was I to care.
I've sure had fun, but I've just begun
Now all in love is fair,
is fair, is fair, is fair.
