Swallowed up, no where to turn
Seems like things have been that way since I was born
Just another man singing black diamond blues again
Like my father and his father before him

Poison winds blowing down mine one
Thunders rolling in now thirteen gone
Junior says a sinner's prayer our souls to keep
Got a picture in my pocket of my baby and me
Standing in the sun on a winters day
Seems so damn far away

And I hear the church bells are ringing
Singing glory to god alone
Twelve men found broken but breathing
I see a light come to carry me on

Carry me past these coalfields
Through the mountains and rolling hills
Through the town where I was born
I see a light come to carry me on
