-----------------------................

*from 'A Mighty Wind Original Soundtrack' (2003)*


Intro:

Dm

Verse 1:

       Dm               C          C/B
It was April 27, in the year of 91,
       Am                             Dm
Bout a mile below the surface and the warm Kentucky sun.

    Dm                             C                    C/B
The late shift was ending, and the early shift was late,
    Am                             Dm
The foreman ate his dinner, from a dirty tin plate.

Chorus 1:

Dm                    C                 C/B
 Blood on the tracks, blood in the mine,
Am                            Dm
 Brothers and sisters, what a terrible time.
            C                 C/B
Ole 97 went in the wrong hole,
       Am                      Dm
Now in mine number 60, there's blood on the coal,
                                C    C/B  Am
Blood on the coal, blood on the coal.

Verse 2:

    Dm                              C     C/B
The slag pits were steamin', it was 7:25,
      Am                                Dm
Every miner worked the coal face; every one of them alive.

    Dm
The train came round the corner,
          C                     C/B
You could hear the tressel groan,
        Am                              Dm
But the switcher wasn't listnin', so he left the switch alone!

Chorus 2:

Dm                    C                 C/B
 Blood on the tracks, blood in the mine,
Am                            Dm
 Brothers and sisters, what a terrible time.
            C                 C/B
Ole 97 went in the wrong hole,
       Am                      Dm
Now in mine number 60, there's blood on the coal,
                                C    C/B  Am
Blood on the coal, blood on the coal.

Verse 3:

          Dm                                          C    C/B
Well, the walls began to tremble and the men began to yell,
           Am                                  Dm
They could hear that lonesome whistle, like an echo out of...well.

     Dm                                     C                   C/B
They dropped their picks and shovels, as to safety they did run,
       Am                            Dm
For to stay among the living, in the year of ninety-one.

Chorus 3:

Dm                    C                 C/B
 Blood on the tracks, blood in the mine,
Am                            Dm
 Brothers and sisters, what a terrible time.
            C                 C/B
Ole 97 went in the wrong hole,
       Am                      Dm
Now in mine number 60, there's blood on the coal,
                                C    C/B  Am
Blood on the coal, blood on the coal.

Verse 4:

   Dm                                C                      C/B
An Irishman named Murphy said; "I'll stop that iron horse!"
       Am                                   Dm
And he stood to athwart it's passage and it crushed him dead of course.

      Dm                            C                      C/B
And I hope he hears the irony, when e're this tale is told,
    Am                                   Dm
The train that took his life was burning good Kentucky coal. (Hey!)

Chorus 4:

Dm                    C                 C/B
 Blood on the tracks, blood in the mine,
Am                            Dm
 Brothers and sisters, what a terrible time.
            C                 C/B
Ole 97 went in the wrong hole,
       Am                      Dm
Now in mine number 60, there's blood on the coal,
                                C    C/B  Am
Blood on the coal, blood on the coal.
