D         A         D


D                   G7            D
Well I was born the coal miner's daughter
                E7               A7    E7     A
In a cabin on a hill on Butcher Holler _____
We were poor but we had love
           G7                         D
That's the one thing that daddy made sure of
                       A7      D             G7  D
He shoveled coal___ to make a poor man's dollar

[Verse 1]

    D           G7                         D
My daddy worked all night in the Van Leer coal mine
                    E7               A7     E7    A
All day long in the field  a hoein' corn _____
Mommy rocked the babies at night
             G7                          D
And read the Bible by the coal oil light
                               A7                  D      Bb
And everything would start all over come break of morn

[Verse 2]

      D#                     G#7                D#
Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay
                                F7              Bb7   F7  Bb
Mommy scrubbed our clothes on a washboard everyday
                          D#        G#7                   D#
Why I've seen her fingers bleed to complain there was no need
                        Bb7            D#       Bb
She's smiled in mommy's understanding way

[Verse 3]

D#                   G#7                   D#
In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
                           F7                   Bb  F7   Bb
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
       D#                       G#7                D#
From a mail order catalog money made by selling a hog
                        Bb7            D#         B
Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere

[ Outro ]

         E             A7            E
Yeah I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
                    F#m7               B    F#m7   B
I remember well the well where I drew water
The work we done was hard
              A7                       E
At night we'd sleep cause we were tired
                        B               E
I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler
                          A7                         E
Well a lot of things have changed since the way back then
                       F#m7       B
And it's so good to be back home again
         E                          A7              E
Not much left but the floor nothing lives there anymore
                         B7            E
Except the memories of a coal miner's daughter
