About: Jimmy Rose Coal Keeps the Lights On 1


Big thumbs up from Versailles KY!!!! Awesome πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
He pulls in that ole' Chevy from a second shift.
Mama's still sleeping, kids still crashed down on the couch.
He goes on the backdoor; he don't wanna wake them up.
So he wipes the coal dust off his face and hits his knees.
He says, "Lord, I want to thank you for everything.
And the strength you give me to make it day by day.
Coal keeps the lights on.
My hometown keeps food on the spoon in my youngin's mouth.
Tires on the truck and a sundress on my baby girl.
Coal keeps the bills paid, the clothes on the backs,
and shoes on the feet in the high school halls of the Mountain Lions
and the Bill County Bobcats on the hill.
They went plumb down crazy in Washington.
They're talking about closing the mines.
They're gonna bleed us all dry from the inside out.
They don't care that much about the little man or the calloused hands.
It's a way of life 'round, just like it's always been
Coal keeps the lights on.
My hometown keeps food on the spoon in my youngin's mouth.
Tires on the truck and a sundress on my baby girl.
Coal keeps the bills paid, the clothes on the backs,
and shoes on the feet in the high school halls of the Mountain Lions
and the Bill County Bobcats on the hill.
If I get the chance to stand one day,
And name the things to me that I'm most proud of,
Well, I hope one day I can say, that coal kept the lights on.

God Bless. I work with a lot of ex coal miners some who have worked the same mines as you. After FBHO war on coal they had to go on the road and work traveling jobs.
This is such a heartwarming song. My Father and Grandfather were steel workers almost 70 years between the two of them. They so worked hard for the very reasons you sing about. I am so thankful for your song. I wish I had heard it sooner. I am from Hamilton Ontario Canada. All the best Mr. Rose.
My great grandfather worked in the Mideastern Ohio Coal mines as the economy shifted to natural gas after the area was all mined and now my family is on the same land we just dairy farm now beautiful song god bless all coal miners, you and your family
Love this song, my Dad worked in the coal mines in West Virginia until his death! I work on a strip mine in South Texas now and this song makes me home sick for those Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia
Great song...from Indonesian coal miner
Everyone that put a thumbs down y'all need to be kicked in the nuts
I may not work on the coal field....but I work with steel an welding. And everyday at work I keep telling myself. ...the steel keeps the lights on keeps the family what they need....at the end of the day...hang in there
The song and the honesty in your voice made an old man cry at the drive through window of Carl’s Jr. I’m blown away
Thank you for this song. Coming from a fellow soldier. I respect all you've done. Semper fi coming from an Army soldier. Hooah!!!
