Misc Traditional - Buddy Wont You Roll Down The Line chords

      
D A7Way down yonder in Tennesee, they leased the convicts out
DTo work in the coal mines, against free labor South;
A7Free labor rebelled against it. To win it took some time.
DBut while the lease was in effect, they made 'em rise and shine.
chorus:
DBuddy, won't you roll down the line?
Buddy, won't you roll down the line?
A7Yonder comes my darlin', comin down the line.
Buddy, won't you roll down the line? Buddy, won't you roll down the line?
DYonder comes my darlin', comin down the line.
Early Monday morning they get you up on time, Send you down to Lone Rock, just to look into that mine. Send you down to Lone Rock, just to look into that hole Very next thing the captain says "You better get your pole." The beans they are half done, the bread is not so well. The meat it is all burnt up and the coffee's black as heck. But when you get your task done and it's on the floor you fall Anything you get to eat it'd taste good, done or raw. The bank boss he's a hard man, a man you all know well, And if you don't get your task done, he's gonna give you hallelujah! Carry you to the stockade, and it's on the floor you fall Very next word you hear "You better get your pole (or coal)"
