Intro: Am7 Am     Am7 Am 


Well, the night is as thick as silence 
          C      G      Am 
You can't cut it with a knife 

A man lies in the hospital 
C        G       Am 
Draining out his life 

The trucks are on the back road 
       C        G          Am 
In the dark the headlights shine 

'Cause there's one man dead 
        C      G      Am 
On that Harlan County line 



Oh, anger, like poison 
   C      G       Am 
Is eating at your soul 

Your thoughts are loud as gunfire 
     C       G       Am 
Your face as hard as coal 

Bitterness, like buckshot 
  C        G         Am 
Explodes inside your mind 

And there's one man dead 
        C      G      Am      Am7 Am 
On that Harlan County line 



Oh, a miner's life is fragile 
         C       G         Am 
It could shatter just like ice 

But those who bear the struggle 
     C      G        Am 
Have always paid the price 

There's blood upon the contract 
     C   G      Am 
Like vinegar in wine 

And there's one man dead 
        C      G      Am      Am7 Am 
On that Harlan County line 



From the river bridge at Highsplint 
       C         G        Am 
To the Brookside railroad track 

You can feel the long strake building 
         C     G         Am 
That can never be turned back 

The dead go forward with us 
    C      G      Am 
Not one is left behind 

'Cause there's one man dead 
        C      G      Am   
On that Harlan County line 



Well, the night is as cold as iron 
        C       G       Am   
You can feel it in your bones 

It settles like a shroud upon 
    C        G        Am   
The grave of Lawrence Jones 

The graveyard shift is walking 
         C           G      Am   
From the bathhouse into the mine 

And there's one man dead 
        C      G      Am   
On that Harlan County line 

One man dead 
        C      G      Am   
On that Harlan County line 

One miner dead 
        C      G      Am   
On that Harlan County line
