Ain’t no Mountain

 

Bring me whiskey, You can bring me gin,

Bring me out from the hole I’m in

One good man cause the others done gone,

Ain’t no coal where I belong

Water clear and water cool,

Share no water with a company fool

Done me right and he done me wrong,

Ain’t no coal where I belong

 

Ain’t no mountain, Aint no coal

Aint no smoke , from the fire in the hole

 

Money come and money go, Money burn in the valley below

Come on honey won’t you come along, Ain’t no coal where I belong

Water clear and water cool, , Share no water with a company fool

Done me right and he done me wrong, ,,Ain’t no coal where I belong

 

Blind man digging on the whiskey ridge,

Poor man jumping from the whiskey bridge

Deaf man singing UMW songs,

Ain’t no coal where I belong

Water clear and water cool, , Share no water with a company fool

Done me right and he done me wrong, , Ain’t no coal where I belong

 

Bridge

30 years since the mountain gone, 30 years since the blue ridge dawn

Come on honey sing a mountain song, Ain’t no coal where I belong

 

Coal black dust on the hills and streams,

Coal black dust inside my daddy’s dreams

Coal black lung don’t tell me right from wrong,

Ain’t no coal where I belong

Bring me back to my cool clear water

Bring back all my sons and daughters

They done me right and they done me wrong,

Ain’t no coal where I belong
