§Verse
§Am
 Get the rocks in the box
§C                                  C/Em 
 Get the water right down to your socks
§      Em                                  Am
 This bulkhead's built of fallen brethren bones

We all do what we can
We endure our fellow man
And we sing our songs to the headframes' creaks and moans

§chorus
§         F
 And it's one two three
§        C/G
 On the wrong side of the lee
§              G
 What were you meant for?
§              Am
 What were you meant for?

And it's seven eight nine
You get your shuffle back in line
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
[Intro riff]

[verse:]
And you won't make a dime
On this gray Granite Mountain Mine
Of dirt you're made and to dirt you will return

So while we're living here
Let's get this little one thing clear
There's plenty of men to die; you don't jump your turn

[chorus]

§Am - C - C/Em - Em - Am

[chorus:]
And it's one two three
On the wrong side of the lee
What were you meant for?
Whatever you're meant for?

And it's seven eight nine
You get your shuffle back in line
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
(Variations of Intro Riff)

this is pretty much the only tab that has both the chords/intro correct and the right lyrics. gj
