Goodnight, Texas - Jesse Got Trapped In A Coal Mine lyrics


ad
Jesse got trapped in a coal mine, digging in the dark black pearl
Jesse got trapped in a coal mine, never did marry his girl
There ain't no air and there ain't no light
And there ain't no way to make it out alive
His wedding was planned for the 5th of July
But Jesse got trapped in a coal mine and never did marry his girl

Your hands get black and your eyes get burned and your lungs get tired and poor
It draws you in like a opium den and beckons you back for more
There ain't no air and there ain't no light
And there ain't no way to make it out alive
His wedding was planned for the 5th of July
But Jesse got trapped in a coal mine and never did marry his girl

Down, down under West Virginia
Down, down in the pitch black earth
Down, down on her knees she cried
My love is somewhere in that mountain

Jesse got trapped in a coal mine, digging in the dark black pearl
Jesse got trapped in a coal mine, never did marry his girl
She held out hope for a couple of months that he was still living somewhere
He'd put up the strongest kind of fight
He'd dig himself out with the dynamite
He'd finally be free on the 5th of July
But Jesse got trapped in the coal mine and never did marry his girl

Down, down under West Virginia
Down, down in the pitch black earth
Down, down on her knees she cried
Down, down deep below the surface
Down, down by the Mason-Dixon line
Down, down on her knees she cried
My love is somewhere in that mountain
