This is variously played by the guitar in the intro


Verse:
Am
Get the rocks in the box
G
Get the water right down to your socks
G                                       Am
This bulkhead's made of fallen brethren bones

Am
We all do what we can
G
We endure our fellow man
G
And we sing our songs to the headframe's creaks and moans

Chorus:
         F                      C
And it's one, two, three on the wrong side of the lee
              G
What were you meant for?
              Am
What were you meant for?
         F                                C
And it's seven, eight, nine, you get your shovel back in line
    G                                              Am
And if you ever make it to ten, you won't make it again
    G                                              Am
And if you ever make it to ten, you won't make it again


FILL - Same as intro, but played on fiddle an octave higher


And you won't make a dime
On this gray granite mountain mine
Of dirt you're made and to dirt you will return

But while we're living here
Let's get this little one thing clear
There's plenty of men to die; you don't jump your turn

CHORUS

FILL - Fiddle again

ACCORDION SOLO

CHORUS 2x

FIDDLE OUTRO

End on Am

I might come back and transcribe the solos, but not today. Have fun!
