Call The Captain  Steep Canyon Rangers

     Call [G]up the c[D/F#]aptain tell em [Em]i aint comin in
    He can[G] dig his own co[D/F#]al somthing esle is[A2] happening
   This l[G]iving that im m[D/F#]aking is doing a[Em] sin
   Hes br[A2]oken the lives of too many good men

Been hauling coal since i was big enough to fight

Some 30 odd shift with out a glimpse of daylight

The corporation likes to say that everythings alright

Dig your self a hole get outa sight

Theres a dark cloud above me thats blocking out the sun

Burn another hundred coal listen to the engines run

1 half is starving while the others having fun

So call the captain, call the captain, call the captain, call the captiannn

    [A2]    Mel[D/F#]inda clos[G]e the[Bm] door
        I a[G]int going d[D/F#]own to the [A2]mines [Dsus2]today
        I want[Cadd9]' clear blue s[Bm]kys and wh[A2]ole lot more
        [G]I aint going d[D/F#]own to the m[Em]ines


    Theres a h[G]ole in this b[D/F#]ucket ive been car[Em]rying around
    I fll it u[G]p to the t[D/F#]op and watch it sp[A2]ill on the ground
    I go[G] down to the mi[D/F#]nes and when i co[Em]me back up
    I go[A2]t nothin to show but the sweat on my brow

These hills are my own flesh and bones

There all that i love and there all that i know

Please dont ask me to destroy my own home

I'm not gonna choose between my heart and soul, soo

Call the Captain tell him i aint coming in

He can dig his own coal something else is happening

This living that making is doing a sin

So call the captain, call the captain, the captainnn


     H[G]ear the wh[D/F#]istle blow this [Em]morning
     H[G]ear the wh[D/F#]istle blow tod[A2]ay
     He[G]ar the wh[D/F#]istle blow this mo[Em]rning
     ([G]just play th[D/F#]e chords no word[A2]s)

     I[G] aint going d[D/F#]own to the mi[A2]nes
     I[G] aint going d[D/F#]own to the mi[Em]nes
