King Coal Lyrics

The jury retired in the face of overwhelming evidencemy
back's against the wall I ain't got no defense
judge said son where you gonna run this time
where you gonna run this time boy
The coal is in my blood like it's smeared across my
face
I dug my daddy's grave at the mine foreman's pace
this town will bring you down somehow
this town will bring you down somehow
King coal I throw myself at your feet
give me back what you've taken from me
king coal I've come to know you well
I think I dug myself halfway to hell
king coal oh king coal
The Maguires stood up and vowed to take them down
I guarantee you this some men will never be found
and there ain't a miner who would shed a tear
there ain't a miner who would shed a tear
So they sat back and brought the informer in
what made it worse he was another hungry Irishman
oh sometimes that hunger can turn on you
that hunger can turn on you

King coal I throw myself at your feet
give me back what you've taken from me
king coal I've come to know you well
I think I dug myself halfway to hell
when I hear that breaker whistle blow
that's all an honest man needs to know
king coal oh king coal
I got blood on my hands but a little mine water will
make them clean
the good Lord would turn his head if he'd seen what we
had seen
on this town will bring you down somehow
this town will bring you down somehow
King coal I throw myself at your feet
give me back what you've taken from me
king coal I've come to know you well
I think I dug myself halfway to hell
when I hear that breaker whistle blow
that's all an honest man needs to know
King coal I throw myself at your feet
give me back what you've taken from me
king coal I've come to know you well
I think I dug myself halfway to hell
I think I dug myself halfway to hell
