Lyrics

I left my shift this morning and I ain't going back
Back down into the ground where the sun don't shine
I wiped the blackness from my eyes
And I watched the new sun rise
I won't spend another day down in that mine.
I won't work another day down in that mine

Oh baby I tried
I tried to live this life for you
And maybe I lied
But I think that you did too
This is more than just some change of heart
Something in me died
Now I can't be the man I promised you I'd be...
But baby I tried.

Now I know your roots run deep down in this coal scarred town
Six generations of miners and their wives
Who watched their own dreams fade to black
Like this dust all down my back
Just trying to give their children better lives
Oh I want to give our children better lives.

Oh baby I tried
I tried to live this life for you
And maybe I lied
But if I did I never knew
I'm sorry if this breaks your heart
But something in me died
Now I can't lead the life I promised you I'd lead
But baby I tried.

Now everything we love he's lying there fast asleep
With his hand me down dreams and his worn out pants
If we leave there's no guarantee
Of how his life will be
But if we stay I know he hasn't got a chance
If we don't go I know he hasn't got a chance

Oh baby I tried
I tried to live this life for you
And maybe I lied
But I think that you did too
This is more than just some change of heart
Something in me died
Now I can't be the man I promised you I'd be...
But baby I tried.
