Blood On The Coal  Misc. Soundtrack

-----------------------................







[Dm]                                     
Verse 1:

It was [Dm]April 27,
In the [C]year of 91,[C/B]
Bout a [Am]mile below the surface,
And the [Dm]warm kentucky sun.

The [Dm]late shift was ending,
And the [C]early shift was late,[C/B]
The [Am]foreman ate his dinner,
From a [Dm]dirty tin plate.

Chorus 1:

[Dm] Blood on the tracks,
[C] Blood in the mine,[C/B]
[Am] Brothers and sisters,
What a [Dm]terrible time.
Ole 97 went [C]in the wrong hole,[C/B]
Now in [Am]mine number 60,
There's [Dm]blood on the coal,
Blood on the coal,
Blood on the [C]coal.[C/B]     [Am]

Verse 2:

The [Dm]slag pits were steamin',
It was [C]7:25, [C/B]
Every [Am]miner worked the coal face,
Every [Dm]one of them alive.

The [Dm]train came round the corner,
You could [C]hear the tressel groan[C/B],
But the [Am]switcher wasn't listnin',
So he [Dm]left the switch alone!

Chorus 2:

[Dm] Blood on the tracks,
[C] Blood in the mine,[C/B]
[Am] Brothers and sisters,
What a [Dm]terrible time.
Ole 97 went [C]in the wrong hole,[C/B]
Now in [Am]mine number 60,
There's [Dm]blood on the coal,
Blood on the coal,
Blood on the [C]coal.[C/B]     [Am]

Verse 3:

Well the [Dm]walls began to tremble,
And the men began to [C]yell,[C/B]
They could [Am]hear that lonesome whistle,
Like an [Dm]echo out of...well.

They [Dm]dropped their picks and shovels,
As to [C]safety they did run,[C/B]
For to [Am]stay among the living,
In the [Dm]year of ninety-one.

Chorus 3:

[Dm] Blood on the tracks,
[C] Blood in the mine,[C/B]
[Am] Brothers and sisters,
What a [Dm]terrible time.
Ole 97 went [C]in the wrong hole,[C/B]
Now in [Am]mine number 60,
There's [Dm]blood on the coal,
Blood on the coal,
Blood on the [C]coal.[C/B]     [Am]

Verse 4:

An [Dm]Irishman named Murphy,
Said "I'll [C]stop that iron horse!"[C/B]
And he [Am]stood to athwart it's passage,
And it [Dm]crushed him dead of course.

And I [Dm]hope he hears the irony,
When [C]e're this tale is told,[C/B]
The [Am]train that took his life,
Was burning [Dm]good Kentucky coal.
(Hey!)

Chorus 4:

[Dm] Blood on the tracks,
[C] Blood in the mine,[C/B]
[Am] Brothers and sisters,
What a [Dm]terrible time.
Ole 97 went [C]in the wrong hole,[C/B]
Now in [Am]mine number 60,
There's [Dm]blood on the coal,
Blood on the coal,
Blood on the [C]coal.[C/B]     [Am]
