Down in the Mine- Dierks Bentley
Capo 2

G C GHere in Harlan County, the choices are Few
G Em D CTo keep food on the table and the babies in shoes
G C G You can grow marijuana way back in the pines
G Em D COr work for the man down in the mine
G C GYou never forget your first day in the hole
G Em D CThere's a pit in your stomach and your mouth's full of coal
G C GThere's no turning back once you make up your mind
G Em D CAs the cart rattles on down in the mine
Chorus:
C D Em Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
C G And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs
D Em CLoading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
C G C GTwelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
D GWay down in the mine
G C GWell the old timers talk but you just don't believe
G Em D CIt can all go to hell at two thousand feet
G C GLife sways in the balance of nature and time
G Em D CAnd fate has no mercy down in the mine
G C GThe news spreads like fire and burned through those hills
G Em D CHopes were held high but five men got killed
G C G On the wings of canaries, your soul surely flies
G Em D C While your bones spend eternity down in the mine
Chorus:
C D Em Way down in the mine, your tears turn to mud
C G And you can't catch your breath for the dust in your lungs
D Em CLoading hillbilly gold where the sun never shines
C G C GTwelve hours a day, diggin' your grave
D GWay down in the mine
G C GSo take a flask from your crib can can and a pull of moonshine
G Em D CAnd say a prayer for them boys down in the mine
