"Old King Coal"
Sturgill Simpson
High Top Mountain (2013)


[Verse 1]
E
Many a man down in these here hills
                       B7        E
Made a living off that old black gold
E
Now there ain't nothing but welfare and pills
                   B7      E
And the wind never felt so cold


[Verse 2]
        E
I'll be one of the first in a long long line
                         B7        E
Not to go down from that old black lung
   E
My death will be slower than the rest of my kind
                                    B7             E    E/F#  E/G#
And my life will be sadder than the songs they all sung


[Chorus]
A                      E
Old King Coal what are we gonna do
                                B7     E    E/F#  E/G#
When the mountains are gone and so are you


[Bridge]
     A                  E
They come from the city to lend a hand
                                       B7
Carrying signs saying, "Shut the mines down"
         A                        E     E/F#   E/G#  A
We ain't looking for pity and you don't un  -  der - stand
      E                           B7              E
So go back to your city now cause this ain't your town


[Instrumental]
A   E   E   B7  E


[Verse 3]
E
My Great Grandfather spent his days in a coal mine
                      B7         E
And his nights on the porch in a chair
E
Now he's in heaven and down here in hell
    B7                       A      A/G#   A/F#  E     E/F#   E/G#
The rivers run muddy and the moun - tains  are   bare


[Chorus]
A                      E
Old King Coal what are we gonna do
                                B7     E    E/F#  E/G#
When the mountains are gone and so are you
A                      E
Old King Coal what are we gonna do
                                B7     E
When the mountains are gone and so are you
