CAPO 3 

BANJO INTRO:Em G D C G D Em


VERSE 1:

Acapella:
In the deep dark  hills of Eastern  Kentucky
                                             C
That's the place where I traced my bloodline.

    G/B  C       G         A         C
And it's there I read on a hillside  gravestone
       Em           B7    Em      
You'll never leave Harlan alive.


VERSE 2:

       Em           G                D          A
Oh, my Grandfathers Dad crossed the  Cumberland Mountains
         Em            G              C
Where he took a pretty girl to be his bride.
          G/B       C         G             A             C
He said  "Won't you walk with me out of the mouth of this holler.
         Em           B7      Em    
Or we'll never leave  Harlan  Alive."


CHORUS:
                    G         C   D      G
Where the sun comes up, about ten in the morning
                  Em         F            C
And  the sun goes down about three in the day
                  G            C       D        G
And you fill your cup whatever bitter brew your drinking
        D/F#       Em                      F          Em
And you spend your life, just thinking of, how to get away.


VERSE 3:

       Em    G             D             A
No one ever knew there was coal in them mountains
        Em            G         C
Until a man  from the Northeast arrived.
G/B    C               G               A            C
Waving hundred  dollar bills said I'll pay for your minerals
Em            B7       Em   
He never left Harlan  alive.


VERSE 4: 

        Em       G              D                 A
Grandma sold out cheap and they moved out west of Pineville
     Em         G                  C
To a farm where big Richland River winds
         G/B       C               G                              
and I'll bet they  danced a little jig 
                     A             C 
and they laughed and sang a little song
          Em               B7     Em  
Who said we'd  never leave Harlan alive.


INSTR: Em  G   D  A  Em G C G/B C G A C  Em  B7   Em

VERSE 5:

        Em             G          D            A
But the times they got hard and tobacco wasn't selling
        Em                 G             C
And Old Granddad knew what he'd do to survive.
     G/B     C              G                 A             C
He  went and dug for Harlan coal and sent the money back to Grandma
        Em        B7     Em  
But he never left Harlan alive.


CHORUS 2:
                    G         C   D      G
Where the sun comes up, about ten in the morning
                 Em          F            C
And the sun goes down, about three in the day
                    G              C     D         G
And you fill  your cup whatever bitter brew your drinking
        D/F#       Em                         F             Em
And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of the grave

     G/B     C              G                 A             C
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
