Youll Never Leave Harlan Alive  Brad Paisley



In the [Dm]deep dark [F]hills of [C]eastern Ken[G]tucky
That's the [Dm]place where I [F]trace my blood[Bb]line
And it's [Bb]there I [F]read on a [C]hillside grave[G]stone
You will [Bb]never leave [A7]Harlan a[Dm]live
Well my [Dm]granddad's [F]dad walked down [C]Katahrins Moun[G]tain
And he [Dm]asked Tillie [F]Helton to be his [Bb]bride
He said won't you [Bb]walk with [F]me out of the [C]mouth of this [G]holler
Or we'll [Bb]never leave [A7]Harlan a[Dm]live
Where the sun comes [F]up about [Bb]ten [C]in the [F]morning
And the sun [Dm]goes down about [Bb]three [F]in the [Bb]day
And you fill your [F]cup with whatever [Bb]bitter brew[C] you're drink[F]ing
And you spend your [Dm]life just thinkin' of [Bb]how to get a[Dm]way
Well [Dm]no one ever [F]knew there was [C]coal in them moun[G]tains
'Til a [Dm]man from the [F]Northeast [Bb]arrived
Waving [Bb]hundred dollar bills[F] he said I'll [C]pay ya for your [G]minerals
But he [Bb]never left [A7]Harlan a[Dm]live
[Bb] [A7] [Dm]
Granny she [Dm]sold out [F]cheap and they [C]moved out west of [G]Pineville
To a [Dm]farm where big [F]Richland River [Bb]winds
I bet they [Bb]danced them a [F]jig and [C]laughed and sang a new [G]song
Who said we'd [Bb]never leave [A7]Harlan a[Dm]live
[Dm] [F] [C] [G]
[Dm] [F] [Bb]
[Bb] [F] [C] [G]
[Bb] [A7] [Dm]
But the [Dm]times they got [F]hard and [C]tobacco wasn't sell[G]ing
And ole [Dm]granddad knew what he'd [F]do to sur[Bb]vive
He went and [Bb]dug for Harlan [F]coal and sent the [C]money back to gra[G]nny
But he [Bb]never left [A7]Harlan a[Dm]live
Where the sun comes [F]up about [Bb]ten [C]in the [F]morning
And the sun [Dm]goes down about [Bb]three [F]in the [Bb]day
And you fill your [F]cup with whatever [Bb]bitter brew[C] you're drink[F]ing
And you spend your [Dm]life just thinkin' of [Bb]how to get a[F]way
Andthe sun comes [F]up about [Bb]ten [C]in the [F]morning
And the sun [Dm]goes down about [Bb]three [F]in the [Bb]day
And you fill your [F]cup with whatever [Bb]bitter brew[C] you're drink[F]ing
And you spend your [Dm]life digging coal from the [Bb]bottom of your gra[Dm]ve.
In the [Dm]deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
That's the [Dm]place where I trace my bloodline
And it's [Dm]there I read on a hillside gravestone
You will [Dm]never leave Harlan alive
