​Hit The Road Jack / Working in a Coalmine

This song is by Alexis Korner and appears on the Compilation album Blues (1999).

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more
What you say?

Woman, oh woman, what are you so mean
You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen
I guess if you say so
I have to pack ma things and go

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more
(Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down)
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more
(Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down)
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more
(Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down)
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more
(Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down)

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down

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

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down

'Cause I make a little money, haulin' coal by the ton
When Saturday rolls around I'm too tired for havin' fun

I keep working every day
But I never my say

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down

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

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down

'Cause I make a little money, haulin' coal by the ton
When Saturday rolls around I'm too tired for havin' fun

Workin' in a coal mine, goin' down, down, down
Workin' in a coal mine, oops, about to slip down
Workin' in a coal mine
