Cumberland Blues

Recommended Posts

[color:brown]

I can't stay much longer, Melinda

The sun is getting high

I can't help you with your troubles

If you won't help with mine

I gotta get down

I gotta get down

Got to get down to the mine

You keep me up just one more night

I can't sleep here no more

Little Ben clock says quarter to eight

You kept me up till four

I gotta get down

I gotta get down

Or I can't work there no more

Lotta poor man make a five dollar bill

Keep him happy all the time

Some other fellow making nothing at all

And you can hear him cryin...

"Can I go buddy

Can I go down

Take your shift at the mine?"

Got to get down to the Cumberland mine

That's where I mainly spend my time

Make good money/five dollars a day

Made any more I might move away -

Lotta poor man got the Cumberland Blues

He can't win for losin

Lotta poor man got to walk the line

Just to pay his union dues

I don't know now

I just don't know

If I'm goin back again

I don't know now

I just don't know

If I'm goin back again
