[Verse 1] 
Em                  C        Em
Travelin down that coal town road. 
C               D            Em
Listenin to my rubber tires whine.
Em                     C         Em
Goodbye to Buckeye and bright Sycamore. 
G           D      Em
I'm leavin' you be-hind.
G                    D          G      
I've been coal miner all of my life. 
G           D            C  D      
Layin' down track in the hole.
      Em                     C          Em
Gotta back like an ironwood, bent by the wind. 
G          D           Em
Blood veins blue as the coal. 
G           D           Em
Blood veins blue as the coal.

[Verse 2] 
Em                        C          Em
Somebody said, "That's a strange tattoo 
 C               D            Em
you have on the side of your head."
Em                            C          Em
I said,"That's the blueprint left by the coal. 
        G              D         Em
Just a little more and I'd been dead.
    G                       D        G  
Well, I love the rumble and love the dark. 
G          D            C D  
I love the cool of the slate,
         Em                        C           Em          
But it's goin down that new road, lookin for a job. 
       G      D        Em
This travelin lookin I hate. (2x)

[Verse 3] 
Em                        C          Em
I stood for the union  walked in the line
 C                  D    Em
fought against the company.
Em                    C     Em
I stood for the U. M. W. of A.
     G          D        Em
Now, whos gonna stand by me?
      G                 D      G 
I've got no house and I got no pay, 
 G          D      C D
Just got a worried soul
      Em                  C           Em 
And a blue tattoo on the side of my head 
 G           D           Em
Left by the number nine coal. (2x)

[Verse 4] 
Em              C       Em
Some day when I die and go 
   C            D           Em
To heaven, the land of my dreams.
   Em                       C       Em
I wont have to worry 'bout losin my job, 
    C             D     Em
To bad times and big machines.
    G                D     G       
I'm not gonna pay my money away
   G       D         C D
On dues or hospital plans.
     Em                       C            Em           
I'm gonna pick coal while the blue heavens roll 

[Outro]
    G                D     G
I'm not gonna pay my money away
   G       D         C D
On dues or hospital plans.     
     Em                       C            Em
I'm gonna pick coal while the blue heavens roll 
     G            D      Em
And sing with the angels band.
     G            D      Em
And sing with the angels band.
