Call the Captain  Steep Canyon Rangers

By Steep Canyon Rangers
Capo 2
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
(end solo)
