Arkansas Coal (Suite)

Not so long ago just outside Paris Arkansas
a young lady had a mountain to climb

Gonna climb up this mountain cause thereís one thing I know
My daddy is in his mountain diggin' Arkansas coal
Yes I hear my mama calling, I let her wait ten minutes more sheíll be so
Cause I like to lay on the ground and listen to the sound of my daddy
Digging Arkansas coal

G          C7               G                         D
I was born in this mountain went down here since I was nine years old
      G                              C7       G        D
And I know some day Iíll die in this mountain diggin', diggin' 
G         Bb       G

Gonna climb up that mountain cause there is one thing I know
My daddy is in that mountain diggin' Arkansas coal
