Pittsburgh Town

This song is by Pete Seeger and appears on the album American Industrial Ballads (1957).

Pittsburgh town is a smoky ol' town, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh town is a smoky ol' town, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh town is a smoky ol' town
Solid iron from McKeesport down
Pittsburgh, Lord God, Pittsburgh

Well what did Jones and Laughlan steal? Pittsburgh
What did Jones and Laughlan steal? Pittsburgh
What did Jones and Laughlan steal?
Up an' down the river jus' as far as you can see
In Pittsburgh, Lord God, Pittsburgh

All I do is cough and choke in Pittsburgh
All I do is cough and choke in Pittsburgh
All I do is cough and choke
From the iron filings and the sulphur smoke
In Pittsburgh, Lord God, Pittsburgh

From the Allegheny to the Ohio, in Pittsburgh
Allegheny to the Ohio
Allegheny to the Ohio
They're joining up in the C.I.O.
Pittsburgh, Lord God, Pittsburgh
