[Verse]
        Am         C        G          Am
In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky
            Am             C            F
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
          F      C         G             Am
And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
          F          E7      Am
You will never leave Harlan alive


[Verse]
         Am         C               G        Am
Well my granddad’s dad walked down Katahrins Mountain
       Am            C               F
And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride
                 F        C            
Said, won’t you walk with me 
            G             Am
out of the mouth of this holler
          F          E7      Am
Or we’ll never leave Harlan alive


[Chorus]
                    C        F     G       C
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
             Am             Bb           Am
And the sun goes down about three in the day
                   C                 F      G          C
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinkin’
                    Am                   Bb          Am
And you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away


[Verse]
        Am  C              G            Am
No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
       Am           C           F
‘Til a man from the Northeast arrived
                F     C                G                Am
Waving hundred dollar bills said, I’ll pay you for your minerals
        F         E7     Am
But he never left Harlan alive


[Verse]
        Am       C                    G           Am
Granny sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville
            Am          C          F
To a farm where big Richland River winds
            F            C                G          Am
I bet they danced them a jig, laughed and sang a new song
              F            E7     Am
Who said we’d never leave Harlan alive


[Instrumental bridge]
Am   C   G   Am
Am   C    F
F    C   G   Am
F    E7  Am


[Verse]
         Am            C           G        Am
But the times they got hard and tobacco wasn’t selling
             Am             C          F
And ole granddad knew what he’d do to survive
            F              C            G                   Am
He went and dug for Harlan coal and sent the money back to granny
        F         E7     Am
But he never left Harlan alive


[Chorus]
                    C        F  G       C
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
      C          Am         Bb           Am
And the sun goes down about three in the day
                   C                 F      G          C
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinkin’
                    Am                   Bb          Am
And you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away
                    C        F  G       C
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
      C          Am         Bb           Am
And the sun goes down about three in the day
                   C                 F      G          C
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinkin’
                    Am                        Bb             Am
And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave


[Verse]
       Am         C        G          Am
In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky
            Am           C             F
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
         F       C          G            Am
And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
        F          E7      Am
You'll never leave Harlan alive
