Mothers from Appalachia ~ (The USA)


Oh, mothers from Appalachia

Populating its rolling wooded hills

With your numerous offspring

Your endless struggle for life

Made you strong and resourceful

In the middle of such poor choices

Like alcoholism and joblessness

Or slaving in the coal mines

Yet you still take care of them all

Especially the ones who gave up

Forging a strong family bond

Oh, you women with a big heart

Breaking a chicken’s neck with a shake
