[Verse]:
          C
When the whistle blows each morning
      G7                          C
And I walk down in that cold dark mine
        C
I say a prayer to my dear savior
              G7                          C
please let me see that sun shine one more time


[Chorus]:
F                       C
when oh when will it be over
     F                        G
When will I lay these burdens down
           C
And when I die, dear Lord in heaven
             G7                             C
Please take soul from 'neath that cold dark ground


[Verse]:
        C
I still grieve for my poor brother
            G7                      C
and I still hear my dear old mother cry
          C 
Late that night they came and told her
            G7                        C
he lost his life down in the van leer mine


[Chorus]:
F                       C
when oh when will it be over
     F                        G
When will I lay these burdens down
           C
And when I die, dear Lord in heaven
            G7
Please take soul from 'neath that cold dark ground


[Verse]:
          C
I have no shame, I feel no sorrow
        G7               C  
If this earth, not much I own
           C 
I have the love of my sweet children
            G7                   C
An old plow mule, a shovel and a hoe


[Chorus]:
F                       C
when oh when will it be over
     F                        G
When will I lay these burdens down
           C
And when I die, dear Lord in heaven
            G7                               C
Please take soul from 'neath that cold dark ground

            C
Yeah when I die, dear Lord in heaven
            G7                              C
Please take soul from 'neath that cold dark ground
