Coal miner's blues

Some blues are just blues, mine are the miner's blues
Some blues are just blues, mine are the miner's blues
My troubles keep coming by threes and by twos

Blues and more blues, it's that coal black blues
Blues and more blues, it's that coal black blues
Got coal in my hair, got coal in my shoes

There blues are so blue, they  are the coal black blues
There blues are so blue, they  are the coal black blues
For my place will cave in, and my life I will lose

You say they are blues, there old miner's blues
You say they are blues, there old miner's blues
Now I must have sharpened these picks that I use

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 miner's blues
