Album “Ain't It Somethin'”‎



Nell’impianto nucleare di Hanford, Washington, fu arricchito il plutonio per “Fat Man”, la bomba ‎che il 9 agosto 1945 gli statunitensi fecero esplodere su Nagasaki uccidendo all’istante oltre 70.000 ‎persone e ferendone altrettante…‎
I used to live in Richland, Washington;‎
My daddy worked at the Hanford plant.‎
My daddy came from Oklahoma,‎
He made plutonium at the Hanford plant.‎
He made plutonium in Richland, Washington;‎
He bought our groceries, he paid our rent,‎
It was a pretty little town, that Richland, Washington,‎
Where my daddy worked at the Hanford plant.‎

I started school in Richland, Washington,‎
Where my daddy worked at the Hanford plant.‎
There were apple trees up there in Washington,‎
Columbia River, Grand Coulee Dam,‎
We went to church in Richland, Washington
Where my daddy worked at the Hanford plant.‎

It’s been so long since Richland, Washington,‎
Where my daddy worked at the Hanford plant;‎
Now my little boys say, “What’s plutonium…‎
What is this thing at the Hanford plant?‎
Where is this place, this Richland, Washington,‎
This Columbia River, this Coulee Dam…‎
Who was this man in Richland, Washington,‎
Who was this man we’ve never seen?”‎
