Youll Never Leave Harlan Alive

  		

verse 1: 
        Dm         F        C          G 
In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky 
            Dm             F            Bb 
That's the place where I trace my bloodline 
          Bb      F         C         G 
And it?s there I read on a hillside gravestone 
          Bb          A7      Dm 
You will never leave Harlan alive 


verse 2: 
Well my granddad?s dad walked down Katahrins Mountain 
And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride 
Said, won?t you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler 
Or we?ll never leave Harlan alive

verse 3: No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains ?Til a man from the Northeast arrived Waving hundred dollar bills said, I?ll pay you for your minerals But he never left Harlan alive Bb A7 Dm verse 4: Granny sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville To a farm where big Richland River winds I bet they danced them a jig, laughed and sang a new song Who said we?d never leave Harlan alive Instrumental Break: (same chords as verse) Verse 5: But the times they got hard and tobacco wasn?t selling And ole granddad knew what he?d do to survive He went and dug for Harlan coal and sent the money back to granny But he never left Harlan alive Repeat Chorus (last chord changes from Dm to F) Last Chorus: F Bb C F Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning Dm Bb F Bb And the sun goes down about three in the day F Bb C F And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you?re drinkin? Dm Bb Dm And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave Last Verse: Dm (one strum) In the deep, dark hills of eastern Kentucky Dm (one strum) That's the place where I trace my bloodline Dm (one strum) And it?s there I read on a hillside gravestone Dm (one strum) You'll never leave Harlan alive
