    Travelin' down that coaltown road,
    Listen to my rubber tires whine;
    Goodbye to buckeye and white sycamore,
    I'm leavin' you behind.
    I've been a coal miner all my life
    Layin' down track in the hole,
    Got a back like an ironwood bent by the wind
    Blood veins as black as the coal.

    Somebody said "that's a strange tattoo
    You have on the side of your head."
    I said "that's a mark of number nine coal
    A little more and I'd be dead"
    But I love the rumble and I love the dark
    I love the cool of the slate.
    But it's travelin' down this new road lookin' for a job
    It's the travelin' and lookin' I hate.

    I've stood for the union, I walked in the line,
    I fought against the company;
    I stood for the u. m. w. of a.
    Now who's gonna stand for me?
    Cause I got no job, I got no pay,
    I just got a worried soul;
    And this blue tattoo on the side of my head
    Left by the number nine coal.

    Someday when I'm dead and gone
    To heaven, the land of my dreams,
    I won't have to worry on losin' my job
    To bad times 'n big machines.
    But I got no job and I got no pay,
    I just got a worried soul;
    And this blue tattoo on the side of my head
    Left by that number nine coal,
    Left by that number nine coal.
