Behind the tar paper shack back in the holler,
Old man shuckin' corn and coilin' copper,
He's about the only business in town,
That ain't been boarded up 'fore the banks shut down.
At first glance, you might think times were hard

There ain't no coal comin' out of that shaft
There's rust all over the railroad tracks
You can't see nothing but a big old black
Cloud up in the sky
And if the good Lord don't see fit
To send a little sun down on these pines, that's fine
Old Leonard gonna make us shine

Way back before these mines were tapped
He had a bigger dot there on the map
Who knows, we might get there again
And who cares that train ain't rollin' in
Look beyond, they're comin' 'round the mountain

There ain't no coal comin' out of that shaft
There's rust all over the railroad tracks
You can't see nothing but a big old black
Cloud up in the sky
And if the good Lord don't see fit
To send a little sun down on these pines, that's fine
Old Leonard gonna make us shine
He's gonna make us shine

There ain't no coal comin' out of that shaft
There's rust all over the railroad tracks
You can't see nothing but a big old black
Cloud up in the sky
And if the good Lord don't see fit
To send a little sun down on these pines, that's fine
That'll be just fine
Old Leonard gonna make us shine

Old Leonard gonna make us shine
Old Leonard's gonna make us shine
Gonna make us shine

Make us shine Leonard
