Working In A Coal Mine (Live) - Johnny Cash

I never picked cotton

But my mother did

And my brother did

And my sister did

And my daddy died young

Workin' in a coal mine

When I was just a baby

Too little for the cotton sack

I played in the dirt

While the others worked

'Til they couldn't straighten up their backs

And I made myself a promise

When I was old enough to run

That I'd never stay a single day

In that Oklahoma sun

And I never picked cotton

Like my mother did

And my brother did

And my sister did

And my daddy died young

Workin' in a coal mine

Folks said that I grew up early

And the farm couldn't hold me then

So I stole ten bucks and a pickup truck

And I never went back again

And it was fast cars and whiskey

Long legged girls and fun

I had everything that money could bring

And I took it all with a gun

And I never picked cotton

Like my mother did

And my brother did

And my sister did

And my daddy died young

Workin' in a coal mine

It was Saturday night in Memphis

When a redneck grabbed my shirt

And he said go back to your cotton sack

I left him lying in the dirt

And they'll take me in the morning

To the gallows just outside

And in the time I got

There ain't a hell of a lot

I can look back on with pride

But I never picked cotton

Like my mother did

And my brother did

And my sister did

And my daddy died young

Workin' in a coal mine

I never picked cotton

Like my mother did

And my brother did

And my sister did

And my daddy died young

Workin' in a coal mine
