Hello, My Name Is Coal
Written by Larry Cordle & Jenee Fleenor
Recorded by Kathy Mattea
Album: Calling Me Home (2012)

(Capo on 2)

I'm from (Dm)West 'by God' Virginia and the (G)high Kentucky hills
I'm (Dm)dirty but I'm honest, I (C)pay a poor man's (G)bills
I'm pros-(Dm)perity and poverty, I'm a (G)scoundrel and a saint
I'm (Dm)loved, reviled, (G)misunderstood, I'm a (C)hope in a (G)hopeless (Dm)place

(Chorus)
Hel-(G)lo, my name is coal, and a-(Dm)round here I'm the king
(G)Some say I'm a savior, some say (Dm)death is what I bring (Am)
(Dm)I've broke miner's backs and hearts and I've (G)wrestled for their souls
(Dm)Let me intro-(G)duce myself, hel-(C)lo, my (G)name is (Dm) coal |(Dm) |

Inst.:  |(F) |(G) |(Dm) |(Dm) |

(Dm)Some men call me 'black gold', you (G)might have heard of me
My (Dm)body is the mountain, my (C)breath is kerosene (G)
(Dm)You might think I'm out of date, but if I'm (G) out of style and old
And (Dm)why do men still (G)dig me all (C) a-(G)round the (Dm)globe?

(Chorus)
Hel-(G)lo, my name is coal, and a-(Dm)round here I'm the queen
Some (G)say I'm cheap and easy, oh but, (Dm)they still bow to me (Am)
Be (Dm)careful, I'll break up your home and I'll (G)steal away your soul
It's (Dm)dangerous to lust (G) for me, hel-(C)lo, my (G)name is (Dm) coal |(Dm) |

Inst.:  |(F) |(F) |(G) |(G)

They (Dm)curse me now for what I am, but (G)not that long ago
They sang (Dm) my praises (G)everywhere, hello (C) (G) my name is (Dm)coal |(Dm) |

Outro.:  |(Dm) |(Dm) |(Dm) |(Dm) |(Dm) |(C)(G)|(Dm) ------
