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
