Coal Country Lyrics

Charles Wesley Godwin – Coal Country Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm going down to Charleston
Through the shadow of the mountain this road winds
Through closed-up towns, forgotten dreams, and welcome signs
Fading far behind
Coal Country

[Verse 2]
I'm thankful for the sun to die
Didn't back down from a Federal fight
Where the lead lies still and the smoke still rises
On the Blair mountainside
Coal Country

[Chorus]
It put a roof over my head
And the armor on the tanks in Normandy
The lights shone bright in the hands of its care
From the western skies to Washington, D.C
Now it lies broken, high, and cold
In its grave of Appalachian stone
Coal Country

[Verse 3]
Now we don't need tokens to a company store
That's what government stamps and codeine's for
We may have won a few battles but we lost the war
Now we're slaves and poor
Coal Country

[Chorus]
It put a roof over my head
And the armor on the tanks in Normandy
The lights shone bright in the hands of its care
From the western skies to Washington, D.C
Now it lies broken, high, and cold
In its grave of Appalachian stone
Coal Country
