Loading Coal  Johnny Cash

Key: Bb / CAPO: 3rd / Play: G
INRTO: C G D G
VERSE:
[G]My pappy said when I was [Em]seventeen
[C]You're six feet tall and you [G]face is clean
[G]And it don't look right for a [C]boy that [G]old
[G]To not make a livin' [Em]loading coal
CHORUS:
[Em]Loading [G]coal loading coal
[G]I'm a [C]double-first cousin to a [G]dad-blamed mole
[G]Never get rich for to [C]save my [G]soul
[G]And forty-eleven years of [Em]loading coal [D]loading [G]coal
VERSE:
Ain't never got aquainted with a dollor bill
And I don't ever reckon that I ever will
A dollar ain't made for a fellow I'm told
That scoops up a livin' loading coal
REPEAT CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL: G C G D G
VERSE:
I cussed everything in the mining camp
But I know just as well when I grow old
I'll still be a cussin' but loading coal
REPEAT CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL: G C G D G
VERSE:
I know just as well as coal is black
One of these days the mines will strike
And I'll sit around starving til I'm finally told
There's a nickel more a ton for loading coal
REPEAT CHORUS
[G]Loading coal, Loading coal, (fade.............)
