black lung heartache lyrics – joe bonamassa

“black lung heartache”

well i’m a man of the mountain
i’m just made of dirt
of this earth i traveled
like a shepherd and his herd

[chorus:]
and i said hang on, hang on
black lung heartache

i sleep in a modest house
these green hills i mind
and if i plow tend my children
who will be by the side?

[chorus:]
and i said hang on, hang on
black lung heartache

i’ve shed many tears
seems i can?t shed no more
you can see them on the table
you can see ’em on the floor

[chorus variation:]
now i said hang on, hang on
black lung heartache

i’ve seen many men
they become hard as nails
carrying the hammers like keys to a jail

[chorus variation:]
now i said hang on, hang on
black lung heartache

now i said so long, so long
black lung heartache
