Artist: Steep Canyon Rangers

Capo 4   

Intro: C  Am  C  Am  G  C  Am 

     C         Am            C           Am
Call up the captain tell him I ain't comin' in 
   C         Am            C           Am
He can dig his own coal something else is happening 
   C         Am            C          Am
This living that I'm making is doing a sin
         G                            Am
It's broken the lives of too many good men 
     C          Am            C             Am
Been hauling coal since I was big enough to fight 
    C          Am            C             Am
Some 30 odd shifts with out a glimpse of daylight 
     C           Am                C             Am
The corporation likes to say that everythings alright 
    G                           
Dig yourself a hole    get outta sight 
     C          Am               C                Am
There's a dark cloud above me that's blocking out the sun 
    C           Am              C              Am
Burn another hundred coal listen to the engines run 
   C         Am                C            Am
One half is starving while the others having fun 
        G
So call the captain, call the captain, call the captain, call the captain

C  Am  C  Am  G  C  Am 
          
   (chorus) 
C      Am          G                 
Melinda close the door      
                     Am           C
I ain't going down to the mines today 
        Am           C         G
I want clear blue skies and whole lot more
                           Am
I ain't going down to the mine

       C            Am              C             Am
There's a hole in this bucket I've been carrying around 
    C           Am            C                  Am
I fill it up to the top and watch it spill on the ground 
     C         Am            C           Am
I go down to the mines and when I come back up 
    G                                     Am
I got nothin' to show but the sweat on my brow 
    C        Am         C          Am
These hills are my own flesh and bones 
     C         Am            C           Am
There all that I love and there all that I know
    C         Am        C           Am
Please don't ask me to destroy my home
       G       
I'm not gonna choose between my heart and soul, so
     C           Am        C           Am
Call the Captain tell him I ain't coming in 
     C             Am            C           Am
He can dig his own coal something else is happening 
  C         Am            C         Am
This living that making is doing a sin 
        G                                                 
So call the captain, call the captain,....call the captain

C  Am  C  Am  G  C  Am

   (chorus)
  
  C          Am        C      Am
Hear the whistle blow this morning
       C               Am        
Hear the whistle blow today
  C                          Am
Hear the whistle blow this morning        

   (chorus)
  
  C                        Am      
I ain't going down to the mine
    G                     Am
I ain't going down to the mine
