Black Lung Heartache

Album: Dust Bowl (2011)
  • Well I'm a man of the mountain
    I'm just made of dirt
    Of this Earth I traveled
    Like a shepherd and his herd

    And I said hang on, hang on
    Black lung heartache

    I sleep in a modest house
    These green hills I mind
    And if I plow tend my children
    Who will be by the side?

    And I said hang on, hang on
    Black Lung Heartache

    I've shed many tears
    Seems I can't shed no more
    You can see them on the table
    You can see 'em on the floor

    Now I said hang on, hang on
    Black lung heartache

    I've seen many men
    They become hard as nails
    Carrying the hammers like keys to a jail

    Now I said hang on, hang on
    Black lung heartache

    Now I said so long, so long
