      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Coal Minin' Man"

      Daylight of dark
      In rain or shine
      It don't much matter
      Down in the mine
      Where the tunnel's deep
      Lord, the air gets thin
      That's the way of life
      For the minin' man

      His lungs are weak
      His back is gone
      His sixty years
      Are plainly shown
      Lived half his life
      Down in the ground
      A cold steel hammer
      Rings a mournful sound

      Daylight of dark
      In rain or shine
      It don't much matter
      Down in the mine
      Where the tunnel's deep
      Lord, the air gets thin
      That's the way of life
      For the minin' man

      I'll tell you, Son
      He said to me
      There's just two things
      I pray to see
      That the day my Savior
      Calls me home
      And to see my son
      Stop minin' coal

      Oh daddy dear
      I'll tell you true
      There's nothing else
      For me to do
      But to make my livin'
      Underneath this land
      And live and die
      A coal minin' man

      Daylight of dark
      In rain or shine
      It don't much matter
      Down in the mine
      Where the tunnel's deep
      Lord, the air gets thin
      That's the way of life
      For the minin' man

      I'll make my livin'
      Underneath this land
      And die like you
      A coal minin' man
