C/G AmI was born on this mountain a long time ago
C/G Dm F AmBefore they knocked down the timber and strip-mined the coal
C/G AmWhen you rose in the mornin' before it was light
C/G Dm Am GTo go down in that dark hole and come back up at night
C/G AmI was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home
C/G Dm F GShe holds me and keeps me from worry and woe
C/G AmWell, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone
C/G Dm F C/GBut I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home
C/G AmI was young on this mountain but now I am old
C/G Dm F AmAnd I knew every holler, every cool swimmin' hole
C/G AmTill one night I lay down and woke up to find
C/G Dm F Am
GThat my childhood was over and I went down in the mine
C/G AmI was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home
C/G Dm F GShe holds me and keeps me from worry and woe
C/G AmWell, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone
C/G Dm F C/GBut I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home
SOLO
C/G AmThere's a hole in this mountain and it's dark and it's deep
C/G Dm F AmAnd God only knows all the secrets it keeps
C/G AmThere's a chill in the air only miners can feel
C/G Dm F Am
GThere're ghosts in the tunnels that the company sealed
C/G AmI was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home
C/G Dm F GShe holds me and keeps me from worry and woe
C/G AmWell, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone
C/G Dm F C/GBut I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home
