Uniontown


Uniontown my name is Uniontown Tourists never seem to come this way a booming cotton town Boll weevil cut me down The black folks were the only ones to stay Ten years ago Two-faced so-and-so’s scarred my soul with a landfill site trucks came from every state Owners couldn’t wait to pile the coal ash seven stories high The EPA Doesn’t care if my town folk get sick or my air Smells like a sewer drain Uniontown a dumping ground for the refuse of the rich While the poor black folk better not complain My country streams Were once so clean heavy metals now turn their color grey The cancer rate Tops the state the nearest hospital is 50 miles away And the EPA Doesn’t care if my town folk get sick or my air Smells like a sewer drain Union towns a dumping ground for the refuse of the rich While poor black folk better not complain The Black Belt group filed a civil suit The company went after everything they owned My lands not plowed It’s so quiet now like a volcano just before it blows Here the EPA Doesn’t care of my town for get sick or my air Smells like a sewer train Union towns a dumping ground for the refuse of the rich wall poor black folk better not complain But those so-and-so’s are sitting on a volcano Called Uniontown
