Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: YOU WON'T GET ME DOWN IN YOUR MINE
Sorry for being such a " Johnny-come-lately " folks, but I've only just read this thread. I see a couple of you wanted the chords for " You Won't Get Me Down In Your Mine " so, better late than never:



                               You Won't Get Me Down In Your Mine

Cm. capo 3

                                        You won't get me down underground in your mine
                                        Am                      C                G                      Am
                                        Away from the trees and the flowers so fine,
                                     AmF                   C                   G             Em
chorus )                         Down in the dark where the sun never shines,
                                        F                C                      G
                                       You won't get me down in your mine.
                                     G      Am                G                Am

                              
                              They dig for the coal for the most of their lives,
                              Am                   C                  G                  Am
                               Away from their children, away from their wives,
                            AmF                      C             G                      Em
                               To make others rich in the heat and the dark,
                              Em F                   C                                  G
                               Who's going to care when they're too old to work ?
                               Am                                              G             Am
