LYRICS

Coal Miner's Blues

Some blues are so blue, they are the miner's blues
Some blues are so blue, they are the miner's blues
My troubles are coming by threes and by twos

Blues and more blues, these old miner's blues
Blues and more blues, these old miner's blues
I must have sharpened these picks that I use

Blues and more blues, dirty coal black blues
Blues and more blues, dirty coal black blues
My place might cave in, and my life I might lose

Blues and more blues, dirty coal black blues
Blues and more blues, dirty coal black blues
Coal in my hair and coal in my shoes

Some blues are so blue, they are the miner's blues
Some blues are so blue, they are the miner's blues
We'll lay off tomorrow with this coal miner's blues
