       Dm         F        C          G
In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky
           Dm             F            Bb
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
         Bb      F         C         G
And it's there Ipread on`a hillside gravestone
         Bb         A7 `    Dm
jYou wil never leave Harlan alive

       Dm           F          C             G
Well my granddad's dad walked down Katahrins Mountain
       Dm           F                Bb
And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride
  C             Bb         F             C             G
Said, won't you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler
         Bb         A7 `    Dm
Or we'll never leave Harlan alive


Chorus:
                    F        Bb          F
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
            Dm             Bb            F
And the sun goes down about three in the day
        C           F                 Bb                F
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinkin'
                   Dm                   Bb          Dm
And you spend your life just thinkin' of how to get away


       Dm   F              C            G
No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
       Dm           F         Bb
'Til a man from the Northeast arrived
       Bb             F                C                G
Waving hundred dollar bills said, I'll pay you for your minerals
       Bb         A7 `   Dm
But he never left Harlan alive

Bb     F    A7 `    Dm

       Dm       F         C                      G      
Granny sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville
     Dm         F                  Bb
To a farm where big Richland River winds
            Bb             F                C        G
I bet they danced them a jig, laughed and sang a new song
         Bb               A7     Dm
Who said we'd never leave Harlan alive

(Instrumental)Chorus Chords

        Dm        F        C              G
But the times got hard and tobacco wasn't selling
        Dm            F               Bb
And ole granddad knew what he'd do to survive
            Bb             F                 C             G
He went and dug for Harlan coal And sent the money back to granny
    Bb            A7     Dm
But he never left Harlan alive


Chorus:
                    F        Bb         F
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
            Dm             Bb            F
And the sun goes down about three in the day
                   F                 Bb                F
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinkin'
                   Dm                   Bb          F
And you spend your life just thinkin' of how to get away


Last Chorus:
                   F         Bb         F
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
            Dm               Bb           F
And the sun goes down about three in the day
                  F                 Bb                  F
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinkin'
                   Dm                         Bb             Dm
And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave

       Dm        F        C       G
In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
       Dm        F                Bb
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
         Bb      F         C        G
And it's there I read on a hillside gravestone
         Bb          A7     Dm
You will never leave Harlan alive
