Five o'clock in the mornin', I'm already up and gone
Lord, I'm so tired, how long can this go on

'Cause I making little money, hauling coal by the ton
But when Saturday rolls around, I'm too tired for having fun

Well, I'm working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down

Come on, working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down

Five o'clock in the mornin', already up and gone
Lord, I'm so tired, how long can this go on

Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down

Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down

Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down
Working in the coal mine, going down, down, down
Working in the coal mine, whoop, about to slip down

Tell me, how long can this go on?
How about ready going home y'all
