Genie Origins: Green Rolling Hills of West Virginia (34) Story behind: Green Rolling Hills of West Virginia 07 May 13

A folkie friend asked me if I knew the story behind this Utah Phillips song.   What "wrong" do the lyrics of the 3rd verse refer to?    Is it just the generic "the right" v. "the wrong" or is it a reference to something that happened that led to the 'narrator" leaving West VA?

Did Utah Phillips ever tell the story behind this song?
