The song is called A Hero in Harlan.
Lewis tells us that "somebody should send this song to President Bush":
Tom T. is sounding old--about like some of Johnny Cash's last records.
I have been a Tom T. Hall fan from the day I first heard the song, "Harper Valley PTA."
Anyway, I have listened to the song so many times that I have learned the lyrics and have copied them in this post. You can hear a sample of the song by going to this website and following directions.
