[Verse 1]

      C#m                    E
I wandered far from Harlan County
        C#m          E
Wanted to escape the fate
          A               E   
Of digging coal out of a mountain
   A                   B                   E
Where a man can break his back and dig his grave

[Verse 2]

        C#m                    E
I work the fields of southern Georgia
    C#m             E
I lumbered mills in Tennessee
I drove steel down in Alabama
       A                             E
But Kentucky kept on call and haunting me

[Verse 3]

         C#m             E
Like the fish of Harlan County
        C#m                E
That swam the river to the sea
       A                E   
They’ll return they’re ready
       A              B              E
To rest in the cold cold mountain stream

[Verse 4]

          C#m                E
I want to go back to Harlan County
          C#m                    E
Can’t shake the cold dust out of my brain
              A                      E   
Though things have changed in Harlan County
           A                 B           E
At the courthouse, in the records, find my name

[Verse 5]

               C#m                    E 
There’s a little church up in Harlan County
         C#m            E
As a young man I knew it well
            A                       E   
I want to go back to knell at that altar
        A      B                E
And feel the spirit in my prism swell

[Verse 6]

         C#m             E
Oh Harlan county of old Kentucky
         C#m               E
Your mountain calls for me and wait
          A              E   
I’m proud to be from Harlan County
           A          B                  E
On the mountain in the cold I’ll dig my grave
           A          B                  E
On the mountain in the cold I’ll dig my grave
