D                                       Bm
I was born on this mountain a long time ago 
D                            Em         G               Bm
Before they knocked down the timber and strip-mined the coal 
D                                           Bm
When you rose in the mornin' before it was light 
      D            Em            G               Bm    A
To go down in that dark hole and come back up at night 
      D                                         Bm 
I was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home 
D                Em            G         A
She holds me and keeps me from worry and woe 
           D                                          Bm
Well, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone 
         D           Em             G             D  
But I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home 
D                                         Bm
I was young on this mountain but now I am old 
      D          Em            G             Bm 
And I knew every holler, every cool swimmin' hole 
D                                        Bm
Till one night I lay down and woke up to find 
        D             Em               G          Bm  A
That my childhood was over and I went down in the mine 
      D                                         Bm 
I was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home 
D                Em            G         A
She holds me and keeps me from worry and woe 
           D                                          Bm
Well, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone 
         D           Em             G             D  
But I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home 

SOLO

D                                                      Bm
There's a hole in this mountain and it's dark and it's deep 
    D        Em            G          Bm   
And God only knows all the secrets it keeps 
          D                                Bm
There's a chill in the air only miners can feel 
         D             Em               G       Bm      A
There're ghosts in the tunnels that the company sealed
      D                                         Bm 
I was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home 
D                Em            G         A
She holds me and keeps me from worry and woe 
           D                                          Bm
Well, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone 
         D           Em             G             D  
But I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home
