Baer might know some but he don't know me
when Mitchell calls us out he'd better leave my breast be
for I've got miners' eyes; in the dark they see
and I'll sing hallelujah

Oh oh oh oh oh
we'll sing hallelujah

It's been twenty years since a raise in pay
and the company store is gonna own my grave
the coal I dug they claimed was rock today
and I'll sing hallelujah

Oh oh oh oh oh
we'll sing hallelujah

So the time is right though times are bad
but it's the only job that I've ever had
wives hide their husbands' clothes so they won't scab
for them I'll sing hallelujah

Oh oh oh oh oh
we'll sing hallelujah

He said, "The coal you dig it ain't got no face
and it don't give a damn for religion or race
it's just coal looking to get out of this place
and we'll sing hallelujah."

Oh oh oh oh oh
we'll sing hallelujah
