Electricity

Performed by The Havens
Written by Rachael Benjamin

Well….Ms. Whaley and Mr. Smith
Came down that Chicago Line
They came down when the depression hit
To that old town of mine

They left the city
For the farms they know
Knew when they were young
But they couldn’t leave that bright night glow
That’s when they made their own

And they made
Electricity, Electricity
Came down from the city
To light a light for me
Came down from the country
Only four farms wide
Form the co-op on the Fleming-Mason Line

Now Fleming County was a quiet place
Tucked in those mountain hills
The people saw the glowing light
And they thought it was a heavenly throng

But it was
Electricity, Electricity
Came down from the city
To light a light for me
Came down from the country
Only four farms wide
Form the co-op on the Fleming-Mason Line

Now the farmers came from all around
The farmers came to see
The great light and working sounds
Of electricity

Now the farmers stay up past the sun
Make their workday long
And they sleep in, like city men
To that old mountain home

Cus of….
Electricity, Electricity
Came down from the city
To light a light for me
Came down from the country
Only four farms wide
Form the co-op on the Fleming-Mason Line
Yes, they formed the co-op on the Fleming-Mason Line
Yes, they formed the co-op on the Fleming-Mason Line
