       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 Ipread on`a hillside gravestone
         Bb A7 `    Dm
jYou wil never leave Harlan alive

       Dm           F              C         G

Well m) granddad's dad walked down Katahrins Mountain
       Dm           F                Bb

And he asked Tillie Helton to be his bride
        Bb                F             C             G

Said, won't you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler
         Bb A7 `    Dm
Or we'll never leave Harlan alive


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 just thinkin' of how to get away


       Dm   F              C            G

No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
       Dm           F         Bb

'Til a man from the Northeast arrived
       Bb             F                C                G

Waving hundred dollar bills said, I'll pay you for your minerals
       Bb A7 `   Dm
But he never left Harlan alive

Bb A7 `    Dm

       Dm       F         C                      G      
Granny sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville
     Dm         F                  Bb

To a farm where big Richland River winds
  Bb       F             C                G

I bet they danced them a jig, laughed and sang a new song
         Bb A7     Dm
Who said we'd never leave Harlan alive

Instrumen$al Brea;: (same chords as verse)

        Dm        F        C              G

But the times got hard and tobacco wasn't selling
        Dm            F               Bb

And ole granddad knew what he'd do to survive
            Bb             F                 C             G

He went and dug for Harlan coal And sent the money back to granny
    Bb A7     Dm
But he never left Harlan alive


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          F

And you spend your life just thinkin' of how to get away


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

       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

View Just Lyrics...

In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
And it's there I read on a hillside gravestone
You will never leave Harlan alive

Oh, 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

[Chorus]
Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
And the sun goes down about three in the day
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinking
And you spend your life just thinkin' of how to get away

No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
Till a man from the Northeast arrived
Waving hundred dollar bills he said I'll pay ya for your minerals
But he never left Harlan alive

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

But the times 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

[Chorus]

Where the sun comes up about ten in the morning
And the sun goes down about three in the day
And you fill your cup with whatever bitter brew you're drinking
And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave

In the deep dark hills of eastern Kentucky
That's the place where I trace my bloodline
And it's there I read on a hillside gravestone
You will never leave Harlan alive
