Places they Settled
The Cobalt Song
You may talk about your cities
And all the towns you know
With trolley cars and pavements hard
And theatres where you go.
You can have your little auto
And carriages so fine
But it's hobnail boots and a flannel shirt
In Cobalt town for mine.
For we'll sing a little song of Cobalt
If you don't live there it's your own fault
Oh you Cobalt
Where the wintry breezes blow.
Where all the silver comes from
And you live a life and then some
Oh you Colbalt
You're the best old town I know.
