Black Lung lyrics - Steve Earle

Click to play this song!

Sunrise lightin' up the ridgetop
Slicin' through the frost like a red-hot knife
Sometimes I dream that I'm a-runnin' across
But I couldn't now to save my life
Hound dog yippin' in the holler
Musta jumped a bear, bubba, listen to him run
Somebody oughta catch him by the collar
But I ain't goin' nowhere cause I'm down with black lung

Black lung never gets better
Every breath a little bit harder to draw
Shotgun loaded in the corner
Reckon I'ma lie here and die of black lung

Some days are better than the other ones
Sit out on the porch when it's cool at night
Can't say there ain't them that I'm sufferin'
Every breath I take like a twelve-round fight
Grandbabies out beneath the willow tree
Hollerin' and laughin' and it sound like fun
Can't pick 'em up and hug their necks anyway
Sorry, honey, grandaddy's down with black lung

Black lung never gets better
Every breath a little bit harder to draw
Shotgun loaded in the corner
Reckon I'ma lie here and die of black lung

Seem like it was only yesterday
I pulled my first shift in a longwall mine
First breath of fresh air at the whistle
And I already knew it's just a matter of time
If I'd never been down in a coal mine
I'd live a lot longer, hell, that ain't a close call
But then again I'd a' never had anything
And half a life is better than nothin' at all

Black lung never gets better
Every breath a little bit harder to draw
Shotgun loaded in the corner
Reckon I'ma lie here and die of black lung

Black lung never gets better
Every breath a little bit harder to draw
Shotgun loaded in the corner
Reckon I'ma lie here and die of black lung

Black lung never gets better
Every breath a little bit harder to draw
Shotgun loaded in the corner
Reckon I'ma lie here and die of black lung
