Down in the Mine- Dierks Bentley
Capo 2

G                          C           G
Here in Harlan County, the choices are Few
G                   Em            D         C
To keep food on the table and the babies in shoes
G                      C               G 
You can grow marijuana way back in the pines
G               Em   D          C
Or work for the man down in the mine

G                           C          G
You never forget your first day in the hole 
G                     Em               D               C
There's a pit in your stomach and your mouth's full of coal 
G                                C            G
There's no turning back once you make up your mind 
G                   Em	D          C
As the cart rattles on down in the mine 

Chorus: 
C               D                        Em 
Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
			 C			      G			
And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs 
                  D                        Em   C
Loading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
C              G    C            G
Twelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
    D           G
Way down in the mine

G                                C           G
Well the old timers talk but you just don't believe
G                Em      D            C
It can all go to hell at two thousand feet
G                            C          G
Life sways in the balance of nature and time 
G               Em    D           C
And fate has no mercy down in the mine

G                              C                    G
The news spreads like fire and burned through those hills
G               Em       D            C
Hopes were held high but five men got killed
G                              C           G  
On the wings of canaries, your soul surely flies
G                      Em       D           C 
While your bones spend eternity down in the mine

Chorus: 
C               D                        Em 
Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
			 C			      G			
And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs 
                  D                        Em   C
Loading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
C              G    C            G
Twelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
    D           G
Way down in the mine

G                                            C       G
So take a flask from your crib can can and a pull of moonshine
G                         Em   D           C
And say a prayer for them boys down in the mine
