Call The Captain 
By Steep Canyon Rangers 


     Capo 4

C Cmaj9 Am Call up the captain tell em i aint comin in
C Cmaj9 Am He can dig his own coal somthing esle is happening
C Cmaj9 Am This living that im making is doing us in
G Hes broken the lives of too many good men
Been hauling coal since i was big enough to fight Some 30 odd shift with out a glimpse of daylight The corporation likes to say that everythings alright Dig your self a hole get outa sight Theres a dark cloud above me thats blocking out the sun Burn another hundred coal listen to the engines run 1 half is starving while the others having fun So call the captain, call the captain, call the captain, call the captiannn (chorus)
Am G Melinda close the door
C Am I aint going down to the mines today
C G I want' clear blue skys and whole lot more
Am I aint going down to the mines
(verse)
C Cmaj9 Am Theres a hole in this bucket ive been carrying around
C Cmaj9 Am I fill it up to the top and watch it spill on the ground
C Cmaj9 Am I go down to the mines and when i come back up
G I got nothin to show but the sweat on my brow
These hills are my own flesh and bones There all that i love and there all that i know Please dont ask me to destroy my own home I'm not gonna choose between my heart and soul, soo Call the Captain tell him i aint coming in He can dig his own coal something else is happening This living that making is doing us in So call the captain, call the captain,.......call the captainnn (solo) (chorus)
C Cmaj9 Am Hear the whistle blow this morning
C Cmaj9 Am Hear the whistle blow today
C Cmaj9 Am Hear the whistle blow this morning
C Cmaj9 Am (just play the chords no words)
(chorus)
G Am I aint going down to the mines
G Am I aint going down to the mines
(end solo)
