Update #8: Hell Town

Some folk are deeply rooted by nature and feel a profound and lasting connection to different regions, towns, and places.  I read this story about a town in central Pennsylvania that had a coal fire burning under it for years and years and years (since 1962!).  Many refused to leave the area despite the fire.  I couldn’t get it out of my head; so it turned itself into a song.  The town is called Centralia. 

This song is called “Hell Town”.      

………“When they lay our bodies down beneath that burning ground we’ll be in that lazy smoke curling up the trees”

Thank You.........Have a great night.....Dave
