Behind a tar paper shack back in the holler
Old man shucking corn and coiling copper
He's about the only business in town
That ain't been boarded up or the bank shut down
At first glance you might think time were hard

Chorus
There ain't no coal comin' out of that shaft
There's rust all over the railroad track
Can't see nothing but a big ol' black cloud up in the
Sky
And if the good Lord don't see fit to a little sun
Down on these pines that's fine
Ol' Leonard gonna make us
Shine

Way back before these mines were tapped
We had a bigger dot there on the map
Who knows we might get there again
And who cares that train ain't rolling in
Look a yonder coming 'round the mountain

Chorus

He's gonna make us
Shine

There ain't no coal comin' out of that shaft
There's rust all over the railroad track
Can't see nothing but a big ol' black cloud up in the
Sky
And if the good Lord don't see fit to send a little sun
Down on these pines that's fine
That'll be just find
Ol' Leonard gonna make us
Shine

Ol' Leonard gonna make us shine
Ol' Leonard gonna make us shine
Make us shine Leonard
