Coal Miners Daughter written and recorded by Loretta Lynn
C F C Well I was born a coal miner's daughter D7 G7 In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler C We were poor but we had love F C That's the one thing that daddy made sure of G7 C He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar
F C My daddy worked all night in the family coal mine D7 G7 All day long in the field a-hoin' corn C Mommy rocked the babies at night F C Read the Bible by the coal oil light G7 C And everything would start all over come break of morn'
F C Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay D7 G7 Mommy scrubbed our clothes on a washboard every day C I've seen her fingers bleed F C To complain there was no need G7 C She'd smile in Mommy's understanding way
F C In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear D7 G7 But in the winter time we'd all get a brand new pair C From a mail order catalog F C Money made from sellin' a hog G7 C Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere
F C Yeah I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter D7 G7 I remember well the well where I drew water C The work we done was hard F C At night we'd sleep 'cause we were tired G7 C I never thought I'd ever leave Butcher Holler
F C Well a lot of things have changed since way back then D7 G7 And it's so good to be back home again C Not much left but the floor F C Nothing lives here anymore G7 C Just a memory of a coal miner's daughter
