lyrics

Early in the morning I can smell the bacon brown,
Living in a coal mine town.
Nothin' there to drink with black water all around,
Living in a coal mine town.
Diggin'up a mountain just to try and make it pay.
Living in a coal mine town.
Better work than nothin' and here's the only way
Livin in a coal mine town.

Livin in a coal mine town
Livin in a coal mine town.
Kids playin' in black water
Until the sun goes down.
Living in a coal mine town.

You better watch your back and you better watch the lamp.
Livin in a coal mine town,
Your air can go away, taken by a black damp.
Livin in a coal mine town.
Blackness in the air and blackness in your lung.
Livin in a coal mine town.
Workin' as miner makes you feel like you been stung.
Livin in a coal mine town.

Livin in a coal mine town
Livin in a coal mine town.
Kids playin' in the water
Until the sun goes down.
Living in a coal mine town.
