The Mountain

(Steve Earle)


D                                               Bm  
I was born on this mountain a long time ago   
D                                           Em              G                   Bm  
?fore they knocked down the timber and strip-mined the coal.   
D                                                 Bm  
When you rose in the mornin' before it was light,   
           D                 Em             G             Bm       A  
Go down in that dark hole and come back up at night. 

               D                                            Bm   
I was born on this mountain, this mountain's my home   
D                                     Em                  G           A  
And she holds me and keeps me from worry and woe.   
                     D                                                  Bm  
Well, they took everything that she gave, now they're gone,   
              D                       Em             G                  D    
But I'll die on this mountain, this mountain's my home.  
                 D                                       Bm  
I was young on this mountain but now I am old,   
                D                Em            G                Bm   
And I knew every holler, every cool swimmin' hole   
          D                                             Bm  
Till one night I lay down and woke up to find   
                      D                 Em             G       Bm  A  
That my childhood was over; I went down in the mine. 

Instrumental break  
                   D                                          Bm  
There's a hole in this mountain; it's dark and it's deep   
            D                Em            G            Bm     
And God only knows all the secrets it keeps.   
                   D                                 Bm  
There's a chill in the air only miners can feel   
                          D                 Em                 G     Bm      A  
And there?s ghosts in the tunnels that the company sealed.
