WORKING IN A COAL MINE (lyrics)

Well I been workin in a coal mine

Goin down down

Workin in a coal mine

Whew about to slip down

Five oclock in the mornin

Im up before the sun

When my work day is over

Im too tired for havin fun

Lord I am so tired

How long can this go on

I been workin goin workin

Whew about to slip down
