I was raised in a coal mining town,
Never dreamt of sticking round,
But times are tough, if you don’t work you’ll drown,
And the rain is pouring down,
The time to sink or swim is now,
So im diggin’ coal

I put away each and every cent,
To move on down the line but then,
I met a gal, she took away my wind,
And after we got hitched,
I was back in the hole again,
Diggin’ coal

We had a child and I love him dear,
But my wife has made I clear,
That all his family and friends are near,
So it looks like ill be here,
For at least the next eighteen years,
Diggin’ coal

Time has passed so fast and it shows,
My son is getting old,
I wish he’d pack a bag and just hit the road,
Cause I fear that if he don’t,
He’ll take my place here down below,
Diggin’ coal
