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

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
'Til 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

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

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
