I tell my troubles to the coalmanHe’s a coalman but he understandsHe’s not such a very very old manHe’s a soul man and he takes my handHe makes a man feel good when he’s downHead is touching the groundHe’s going to help you if he canHe’s a coalmanI’ve been waiting for the coalmanHe’s a whole man and he treats me niceEv’rybody needs a coalmanWhen you’re low man , you can get adviceHe makes a man feel good when he’s downHead is touching the groundHe’s going to help you if he canHe’s a coalmanI need her loving so much the feeling is too much to bearYou’ve got to have somebody, when she’s not thereI tell my troubles to the coalmanHe’s a coalman but he understandsHe’s not such a very very old manHe’s a soul man and he takes my handHe makes a man feel good when he’s downHead is touching the groundHe’s going to help you if he canHe’s a coalmanI need her loving so much the feeling is too much to bearYou’ve got to have somebody when she’s not thereI tell my troubles to the coalmanHe’s a coalman but he understandsHe’s not such a very very old manHe’s a soul man and he takes my handHe’s gonna help you when he’s downWhen your head is touching the groundAnd he’ll help you if he canHe’s a coalmanCoalman, coalman , coalman,,(repeat/fade)
