You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive - Brad Paisley
Album: Part II
Written by: Darrell Scott


Verse 1:
Dm F C GIn the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky
Dm F BbThat's the place where I trace my bloodline
Bb F C GAnd it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
Bb A7 DmYou will never leave Harlan alive
Verse 2: Well my granddad’s dad walked down Katahrins Mountain And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride Said, won’t you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler Or we’ll never leave Harlan alive Chorus:
F Bb C FWhere the sun comes up about ten in the morning
Dm Bb F BbAnd the sun goes down about three in the day
F Bb C FAnd you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinkin’
Dm Bb DmAnd you spend your life just thinkin’ of how to get away
Verse 3: No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains ‘Til a man from the Northeast arrived Waving hundred dollar bills said, I’ll pay you for your minerals But he never left Harlan alive Bb A7 Dm Verse 4: Granny sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville To a farm where big Richland River winds I bet they danced them a jig, laughed and sang a new song Who said we’d never leave Harlan alive Instrumental Break: (same chords as verse) Verse 5: But the times they got hard and tobacco wasn’t selling And ole granddad knew what he’d do to survive He went and dug for Harlan coal and sent the money back to granny But he never left Harlan alive Repeat Chorus (last chord changes from Dm to F) Last Chorus:
F Bb C FWhere the sun comes up about ten in the morning
Dm Bb F BbAnd the sun goes down about three in the day
F Bb C FAnd you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you’re drinkin’
Dm Bb DmAnd you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave
Last verse:
Dm (one strum)In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky
Dm (one strum) That's the place where I trace my bloodline
Dm (one strum)And it’s there I read on a hillside gravestone
Dm (one strum)You'll never leave Harlan alive
