Old King Coal

	  		
verse 1 
E 
Many a man down in these here hills 
                       B7        E 
Made a living off that old black gold 
E 
Now there ain't nothing but welfare and pills 
                   B7      E 
And the wind never felt so cold 


verse 2 
        E 
I'll be one of the first in a long long line 
                         B7        E 
Not to go down from that old black lung 
   E 
My death will be slower than the rest of my kind 
                                    B7             E    E/F#  E/G# 
And my life will be sadder than the songs they all sung
