[INTRO]

Eb Bb Eb

[VERSE]
Eb                   Ab                Eb
Well I was born the coal miner's daughter
       Eb         F7                Bb
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler
         Eb
We were poor but we had love
            Ab                          Eb
That's the one thing that daddy made sure of
  Eb                Bb                  Eb
He shovel coal to make a poor man's dollar

[VERSE]
 Eb                    Ab                         Eb
My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine
Eb                    F7            Bb
All day long in the field hauling corn
         Eb
Mommy rocked the babies at night
              Ab                    Eb
And read the Bible by the coal oil light
       Eb                      Bb                  Eb
And everything would start all over come break of morn

[VERSE]
       E                       A                   E
Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a miner's pay
           E                       F#7           B
Mommy scrubbed our clothes on a washboard everyday
          E
Why I've seen her fingers bleed 
      A                       E
To complain there was no need
       E                  B              E
She's smiled in mommy's understanding way

[VERSE]
         E            A                   E
In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
            E              F#7                  B
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
        E                         A                E
From a mail order catalog money made by selling a hog
       E                B                  E   C
Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere

[VERSE]
          F              Bb              F   C
Yeah I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
     F               G7                 C
I remember well the well where I drew water
     F
The work we done was hard
                Bb                   F
At night we'd sleep cause we were tired
           F                C              F
I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler

        F                      Bb                    F
But a lot of things have changed since the way back then
    F              G7                C
And it's so good to be back home again
          F                         Bb              F
Not much left but the floor nothing lives there anymore
              F            C               F
Except the memories of a coal miner's daughter
