Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs Coal Miner's Blues Lyrics

sponsored links
Some blues are just blues mine are the miner's blues
Some blues are just blues mine are the miner's blues
My troubles are comin' by three's and by two's
Blues and more blues it's the cold black blue
Blues and more blues it's the cold black blue
Got hole in my hat got hole in my shoes
[ fiddle ]
These blues are so blue they are the coal black blues
These blues are so blue they are the coal black blues
From the place we came in and my life I will lose
You say they are blues these are a miner's blues
You say they are blues these are a miner's blues
I must have sharped this big set I use
[ dobro ]
I'm out with these blues dirty coal black blues
I'm out with these blues dirty coal black blues
We'll lay off tomorrow with the coal black blues
