Nemacolin from the air




It's been a long time, since I been home.
It's been a long time, since I been home.
It's been a long time, since I been home.
And I a'int goin soon
No, I a'int goin back soon.



I was born in a coal camp, stars at my head 
And mountains as far as I could see.
Got to work every day
And I made a big pay
There was honey in the horn for me, 



And the coal dust blows, like a dark summer snow,
but I don't hear the roar of the tipple any more
or the whine of the trucks on the line.



Now the town's all gone, 
It's gone away.
The town's all gone,
It's gone away.
Now the town's all gone, 
It's gone away.
The people are straw, the wind has blowed away.



I was born in the holler that was lonesome and long,
And the sun didn't shine all the day
But the banders in the night and the stars big light
Was pleasures that I wanted to stay.
How could anybody know ?
That the next year or so,
We would all be a wanderin over mountain and plain
Tryin to plant our roots again.



It's been a long time, since I been home.
It's been a long time, since I been home.
It's been a long time, since I been home.
And I ain't goin soon;
No, I ain't goin back soon.
