Align:    
  • Well, I was born'd a coal miner's daughter,
  • In a cabin, on a hill in Butcher Holler,
  • We were poor, but we had love,
  • That's the one thing that daddy made sure of,
  • He shoveled coal t' make a poor man's dollar.
  • [Well, I was born'd a coal miner's daughter,
  • In a cabin, on a hill in Butcher Holler,
  • We were poor, but we had love,
  • That's the one thing that daddy made sure of,
  • He shoveled coal t' make a poor man's dollar.
  • My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear Coal Mines,
  • All day long in the field a-hoein' corn,
  • Mommy rocked the babies at night,
  • And read The Bible by the coal-oil light,
  • Everything would start all over come break of morn'.
  • Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay,
  • Mommy scrubbed our clothes on a washboard every day,
  • Why, I seen her fingers bleed, to complain, there was no need,
  • She'd smile in mommy's understanding way.
  • In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear,
  • But in the wintertime, we'd all get a brand new pair,
  • From a mail-order catalog, money made from sellin' a hog,
  • Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere.
  • Yeah, I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter,
  • I remember well the well where I drew water,
  • The work we done was hard, at night we'd sleep 'cause we were tired,
  • I never thought of ever leavin' Butcher Holler.
  • Well, a lot of things have changed since a'way back then,
  • And it's so good to be back home again,
  • Not much left but the floors, nothin' (alt: no one) lives here anymore,
  • 'Cept the memories of a coal miner's daughter.
