Chaka Khan - Haulin' Coal Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Steamin down the muddy waters
  • Travelin yonder from bay to bay
  • I been workin on the barge line
  • Fourteen years ago today
  • Eighteen hours hard labor by the day
  • Aint much pay for a man
  • Chorus:
  • Haulin coal down the down river
  • And he wont be comin home for a long time
  • Torches burning by the riverside
  • Cast their shadows grey as stone
  • And the cool october days replacing
  • Much warmer thoughts of home
  • I can still see grandma sittin on the porch
  • Tellin the neighbors shes got a grandson
  • Chorus:
  • Haulin coal down the down river
  • And he wont be comin home for a long time
  • Rivers rising up the marker line
  • While the willows softly moan
  • Sun is rising over the starboard shore
  • Paving the golden road back home
  • I can still see the kids jumpin rope
  • But there aint much hope for a man
  • Chorus:
  • Haulin coal down the down river
  • And he wont be comin home for a long time
  • Haulin coal down the down river
  • Ill be gone a long time
  • Haulin coal down the down river
  • Ill be gone a long while
