Black Lung & White Lightnin'

"Daydreams fade on the hoot-owl shift...when you work down in the mines…"

Hard trials and tribulations of a coal miner.
He don't like breathin' that way
But he's lucky that he's breathin' at all
Thirty-five years in a methane cave
Make your lungs all black and raw..

He's gotta pinch between his cheek and gum
and another one in his neck
He's a rockin' back & forth in the shuttle car
and a rollin' towards a nervous wreck.

Way down in the hole where he earns his pay
It's dark and unforgivin'
He's a diggin' for coal, he's a diggin' his grave
He's a dyin' to make a livin'..

He don't like walkin' that way,
but he's lucky that he's walkin' at all
the doctor says he's five foot eight
but he used to be six foot tall

He's gotta bone from his hip in his lower back
and screws in both his legs
He hates missin' work 'cause he needs the cash
So he loves his percocets

Way down in the hole where he earns his pay
It's dark and unforgivin'
He's a diggin' for coal, he's a diggin' his grave
He's a dyin' to make a livin'..

He don't like livin' that way
but he's lucky that he's livin' at all
Thirty-five years as a clinchfield slave
Prayin' that the roof don't fall

He's got 2 heavy eyes and 3 slipped discs
Can't sleep with a metal spine
Daydreams fade on the hoot owl shift
When you work down in the mines,
When you work down in the mines..

Way down in the hole where he earns his pay
It's dark and unforgivin'
He's a diggin' for coal, he's a'diggin his grave
He's a dyin' to make a livin'..
A dyin' to make a livin'..
