The Ln Dont Stop Here Anymore chords – Michelle Shocked

 [Verse 1]
 Em D Em
When I was a curly-headed baby
                 D Em
My daddy set me down on his knee
                       D Em
Saying `Son you go to school, you learn your letters
           C D Em
Don't you be no dusty miner, boy like me'
[Chorus]
       D Em
I was born and raised at the mouth of the Hazard Holler
           D Em
Where the coal carts rolled and rumbled past my door
                         D Em
But now they stand in a rusty row of all empties
             C D Em
Because the L&N don't stop here anymore
[Verse 2]
   Em D Em
I used to think my Daddy was a black man
                      D Em
With scrip enough to buy the company store
                    D Em
But now he goes to town with empty pockets
         C D Em
And his face is as white as the February snow
[Verse 3]
       Em D Em
Never thought I'd live to learn to love the coaldust
                           D Em
Never thought I'd pray to hear those temples roar
                    D Em
But God I wish the grass would turn to money
               C D Em
And then them greenbacks would fill my pockets once more
[Verse 4]
      Em D Em
Last night I dreamed I went down to the office
                  D Em
To get my payday like I done before
                              D Em
But them old kudzu vines was covering the doorway
                C D Em
And there was leaves and grass growing right up through the floor
[Chorus]
       D Em
I was born and raised at the mouth of the Hazard Holler
           D Em
Where the coal carts rolled and rumbled past my door
                         D Em
But now they stand in a rusty row of all empties
             C D Em
Because the L&N don't stop here anymore
