Black Lung Song

Nimrod Workman
Lingua: Inglese



Went into my place this morning
And I got down on my knees
I couldn't load no coal
All I could do was cough and wheeze.

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.

Well, I went to see my doctor
And he looked me over twice
‎"You got something, Nimrod,
Sure gonna take your life

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.

I'm an old coal miner
And I eat dust all my life
I'm too old to learn a new trade
What can I tell my wife?

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.

I got thirteen little children
And they've all got to eat
No clothes upon their back
No shoes upon their feet.

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.

When I get up in heaven
St Peter's gonna cry
When I tell him the reason
Poor Nimrod had to die.

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.

When I get up in heaven
Gonna hug St Peter's neck
When he tells old Paul and Silas
‎"Give Nim his black lung check.

Got that pneumoconiosis, black lung too
You get one, you've got the other
Either way you lose.
