Coal Tattoo Songtext
von Judy Collins

Coal Tattoo Songtext

Travelin′ down that coaltown road
Listen to my rubber tires whine
Goodbye to Buckeye and White Sycamore
I'm leavin′ you behind

Oh, I've been a coal man all my life
Layin' down track in the hole
Got a back like an ironwood bent by the wind
Blood veins blue as the coal
Blood veins blue as the coal

Somebody said, "That′s a strange tattoo
You have on the side of your head"
I said, "That′s the mark of the number nine coal
A little more and I'd be dead"


Oh, but I love the rumble and I love the dark
I love the cool of the slate
But it′s goin' down that new road, lookin′ for a job
This travelin' and lookin′ I hate
This travelin' and lookin' I hate

I′ve stood for the union, walked in the line
Fought against the company
I′ve stood for the U. M. W. of A.
Now who's gonna stand for me?

Well, I got no home and I got no pay
Just got a worried soul
And this blue tattoo on the side of my head
Left by the number nine coal
Left me by the number nine coal

Someday, when I die and go
To heaven, the land of my dreams
I won′t have to worry on losin' my job
To bad times and big machines


Well, I got no job and I got no pay
Just got a worried soul
And this blue tattoo on the side of my head
Left by the number nine coal
Left by the number nine coal
