Coal Tattoo
Billy Edd Wheeler Writer Kathy Mattea 
Am                     F
Traveliní on down the coal town road
Well somebody said thatís a strange tattoo
Someday when Iím dead and gone 

G                          Am
Listeniní to my rubber tires whine
You have on the side of your head
To heaven the land of my dreams

Am                   F
Goodbye to Buckeye, White Sycamore
I said, thatís a blue mark left by the coal
I wonít have to worry about losing my job

G                Am
I leaving you behind
Little more and Iíd been dead.
To bad time and big machines

F                          G
Oh, Iíve been a coal miner all my life
I love the rumble, I love the dark
Oh! I got no house Lord I got no job

F                     G
Laying down track in a hole
Lord, I love the cool of the slate
Just got a worried soul

Am                                   F
Got a back like ironwood, bent by the wind
But itís going down that new road lookiní for a job
And a blue tattoo on the side of my head

G                Am
Blood veins as blue as the coal
Traveliní and lookiní I hate
Left by that number 9 coal
G               Am
Blood veins as blue as the coal
Traveliní and lookiní I hate
Left by that number 9 coal
Left by that number 9 coal
