Coal Tattoo Chords
[Verse 1] 
Em                  C        Em
Travelin down that coal town road. 
G               D            Em
Listenin to my rubber tires whine.
Em                     C         Em
Goodbye to Buckeye and bright Sycamore. 
G           D      Em
I'm leavin' you be-hind.
G          D         G          D      
I've been coal miner all of my life. 
G           D            G  D      
Layin' down track in the hole.
      Em           C         Em          C
Gotta back like an ironwood, bent by the wind. 
Em          D           Em
Blood veins blue as the coal. 
C           D           Em
Blood veins blue as the coal.

[Verse 2] 
Em                        C          Em
Somebody said, "That's a strange tattoo 
    G            C            Em
you have on the side of your head."
  Em                          C          Em
I said,"That's the blueprint left by the coal. 
        G              D         Em
Just a little more and I'd been dead.
      G          D          G          D  
Well, I love the rumble and I love the dark. 
G          D            G D  
I love the cool of the slate,
         Em              C         Em          C
But it's goin down that new road, lookin for a job. 
       C       D        Em
This travelin lookin I hate. (2x)

[Verse 3] 
Em                        C          Em
I stood for the union  walked in the line
 G                  C    Em
fought against the company.
Em                    C     Em
I stood for the U. M. W. of A.
     G          D        Em
Now, whos gonna stand by me?
     G      D           G      D
I've got no house and I got no pay, 
 G          D      G D
Just got a worried soul
      Em       C         Em          C
And a blue tattoo on the side of my head 
 C           D           Em
Left by the number nine coal. (2x)

[Verse 4] 
Em              C       Em
Some day when I die and go 
   G           C           Em
To heaven, the land of my dreams.
   Em                       G       Em
I wont have to worry 'bout losin my job, 
    G             D     Em
To bad times and big machines.
    G          D     G       D
I'm not gonna pay my money away
   D       G        D
On dues or hospital plans.
     Em         C              Em           C
I'm gonna pick coal while the blue heavens roll 

[Outro]
    G          D     G       D
I'm not gonna pay my money away
   D       G        D
On dues or hospital plans.
     Em         C              Em           C
I'm gonna pick coal while the blue heavens roll 
     C            D     Em
And sing with the angel band.
     C            D     Em
And sing with the angel band.
