Kathy Mattea - Coal Tattoo


CAPO: 1st Fret



INTRO: Am


Travelling on down that coal town road
F            G            Am
Listen to my rubber tires whine

Goodbye to Buckeye and White Sycamore
    F       G     Am
I'm leaving you behind


    C                      G         C
Oh, I've been a coal miner all of my life
            G          F  G
Laying down track in a hole__
      Am
Got a back like ironwood, bit by the wind
F              G           Am
Blood veins as blue as the coal
F              G           Am
Blood veins as blue as the coal


INTERLUDE: Am      F  G  Am



Well, somebody said, "That's a strange tattoo
    F           G            Am
You have on the side of your head."

I said, "That's a blue mark left by the coal
  F               G             Am
A little more and I'd have been dead


    C                     G          C
Oh, I love the rumble and I love the dark
                 G           F  G
Lord, I love the cool of the sled__
         Am
But it's going down that blue road, looking for a job
F              G        Am
Travelling and looking ahead
F              G        Am
Travelling and looking ahead


INSTRUMENTAL: Am      F  G  Am      F  G  Am   
              C   G  C   G  F  G    Am    F  G  Am   F  G  Am



Some day when I'm dead and gone
   F           G          Am
To heaven, the land of my dreams

I won't have to worry about losing my job
   F         G         Am
To bad times and big machines


         C                        G      C
Oh, I've got no house, lord, I've got no job
           G       F  G
Just got a worried soul___
      Am
And a blue tattoo on the side of my head
F           G           Am
Left by the number nine coal
F           G           Am
Left by the number nine coal


OUTRO:    (## fade to end ##)

        Am      F  G  Am      F  G  Am   
        C   G  C   G  F  G    Am    F  G  Am   F  G  Am
