This song is by Pure Prairie League and appears on the album Just Fly (1978).

(A.Toussaint)

Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew 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

Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down

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

Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down

Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down

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

Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
Workin' in a coalmine goin' down down down
Workin' in a coalmine whew about to slip down
