Lee Dorsey – Working In The Coal Mine lyrics

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down
Five o'clock in the mornin', I'm all ready up and gone
Lord I am so tired, how long can this go on?
That I'm workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down
'Cause I make all the money, hauling coal by the ton
But when Saturday goes around I'm too tired for havin' fun (Too tired for having...)
I' just workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down

Lord I am so tired, how long can this go on?
That I'm workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down
Five o'clock in the mornin', I'm all ready up and gone
Lord I am so tired, how long can this go on?
That I'm workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down
'Cause I make all the money, hauling coal by the ton
But when Saturday goes around I'm too tired for havin' fun (Too tired for having...)
I'm just workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, whoops, about to slip down

Lord I am so tired
