Matt Andersen  -Coal Mining Blues  

Capo3  


Intro:   C, Em7 (quick), Am , Fmaj7 (quick), repeat

   C                       Fmaj7       Am
I spend all my days, going down to the mine
 G                           G         Fmaj7   Em7
Under the ground, where the sun never shines
      C                     Fmaj7         Am  
I'm breaking my back, I put heat in your house
              G                       G          Fmaj7
I've got the roar of a lion, but the breath of a mouse

     F/C                                G*
I'm black on my hands, I'm black on my shoes
 Dm                                      Fmaj7 
Black on my heart from these coal mining blues
    F/C                                 G
I'm black on my hands, I'm black on my shoes
Dm                                    Fmaj7   Fmaj9   Em7*
Ashes to dust, from these coal mining blues


The man in the mirror, looks nothing like me

Just a wearing reminder of what I used to be

Sunken red eyes, lines in my face

This  tired old man, has taken my place


Black on my hands, Black on my shoes

Black on my heart, from these coal mining blues

Black on my hands, Black on my shoes

Black on my heart, from these coal mining blues


Guitar Solo -same as Intro


I can't fall asleep for the dreams that may come

Of when the walls cave in and the cold fills my lungs

If live is a blessing than please let it be

That someday Gods light will give these pour souls relief 

I'm black on my hands, I'm black on my shoes

Black on my heart from these coal mining blues

I'm black on my hands, I'm black on my shoes

Ashes to dust, from these coal mining blues

Ashes to dust, from these coal mining blues



G*   Hammer (H) and pulloff (P)on the E note 4th string then 
Hammer back on the B note 5th , Then H and P the C(2nd) and E(4th) 
at the same time, back to G for final beat.  Listen to a live version 
on Youtube for timing.

There are a number of versions on line where he leaves out 
some of the repeats in the chorus. If you ever get a chance to see Matt 
live don't pass it up...he's mind blowing.
