Never Leave Harlan Alive-crd

Brad Paisley

 DmFCG
  In the deep,  dark hills of  eastern  Kentucky
 DmFBb
That the  place where I  trace my  bloodline
 DmFCBb
And it's  there I  read on a  hillside  gravestone
 DmAm7Dm
You will  never leave  Harlan  alive

 FCG
Oh, my granddad's  dad walked down  Katahrins  Mountain
 DmFBb
And he  asked Tillie  Helton to be his  bride
 DmFCBb
Said, won't you  walk with me  out of the  mouth of this  
holler
 DmAm7Dm
Or we'll  never leave  Harlan  alive

Chorus
 FBbF
Where the sun comes  up about  ten in the  morning
 DmAm7Bb
And the sun goes  down about  three in the  day
 FBbF
And you fill your  cup with whatever  bitter brew you're  drinkin'
 DmAm7Dm
And you spend your  life just thinkin' of  how to get  away

 FCG
No one ever  knew there was  coal in them  mountains
 DmFBb
‘Til a  man from the  Northeast  arrived
 DmFCBb
Waving  hundred dollar  bills said, I'll  pay you for your  
minerals
 DmAm7Dm
But he  never left  Harlan  alive

 FCG
Granny sold out  cheap and they  moved out west of  Pineville
 DmFBb
To a  farm where big  Richland River  winds
 DmFCBb
I bet they  danced them a  jig, laughed and  sang a new  song
 DmAm7Dm
Who said we'd  never leave  Harlan  alive


 DmFCG
But the  times they got  hard and tobacco  wasn't  selling
 DmFBb
And ole  granddad knew what  he'd do to  survive
 DmFCG
He went and  dug for Harlan  coal and sent the  money back to  
granny
 DmAm7Dm
But he  never left  Harlan  alive

 FBbF
Where the sun comes  up about  ten in the  morning
 DmAm7Bb
And the sun goes  down about  three in the  day
 FBbF
And you fill your  cup with whatever  bitter brew you're  drinkin'
 DmAm7Dm
And you spend your  life digging coal from the  bottom of your  
grave

Repeat Chorus

 DmFCG
  In the deep,  dark hills of  eastern  Kentucky
 DmFBb
That the  place where I  trace my  bloodline
 DmFCBb
And it's  there I  read on a  hillside  gravestone
 DmAm7Dm
You will  never leave  Harlan  alive
