Gentlemen Country Sheet music
Coal, Black Gold as recorded by The Country Gentlemen
Updated 6 Mar 06. Thanks to Rodney and his father for providing 
the words that I did not hear clearly on the recording.

Capo 2nd Fret

Intro (Quick D) (Bm) (A) (D) (G)       (A) (D)
(Hit quick D, then follow pattern of last two lines of chorus*)

(Bm) Coal black (A) gold, (D) dark as midnight waters
(G) Flowing through my memories in the shadows of my (A) soul
*(Bm) Coal black (A) gold, you (D) put my daddy (G) under
*Like him I'm growin' (A) old diggin' (D) coal

In a model T they (A) came, (D) settled in the (G) valley
Spent thirty years down (A) in this blackened (D) hell
And all my daddy (A) got, for (D) all those years of (G) trying
Was a coal dust covered (A) grave upon the (D) hill

As a child I still re-(A)-member, those (D) same old tipples (G) hummin'
Those mighty diesel (A) trains would come and (D) go
As a little barefoot (A) boy, by the (D) coal yards I would (G) wonder
Man where could they be (A) takin' all that (D) coal


Instrumental break - (Same as intro)

Was my bride at seven-(A)-teen, she long (D) since gave up her (G) dreams
Yeah she knows I'll live and (A) die here digging (D) coal
Well she's a coal miner's (A) daughter, though it's (D) not the life she (G) wanted
Like me it's the (A) only one she (D) knows


Like my (G) daddy it's the (A) only life I (D) know
