Am
Get the rocks in the box
C                                  C/Em 
Get the water right down to your socks
      Em                                  Am
This bulkhead's built of fallen brethren bones

Am
We all do what we can
C                    C/Em
We endure our fellow man
        Em                                           Am
And we sing our songs to the headframes' creaks and moans


         F
And it's one two three
        C/G
On the wrong side of the lee
              G
What were you meant for?
              Am
What were you meant for?

          F
And it's seven eight nine
              C/G
You get your shuffle back in line
    G                                             Am
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
    G                                             Am (Intro Riff)
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again


        Am
And you won't make a dime
         C                     C/Em
On this gray Granite Mountain Mine
    Em                                    Am
Of dirt you're made and to dirt you will return

    Am
So while we're living here
                 C               C/Em
Let's get this little one thing clear
         Em                                        Am
There's plenty of men to die; you don't jump your turn


         F
And it's one two three
        C/G
On the wrong side of the lee
              G
What were you meant for?
              Am
What were you meant for?

          F
And it's seven eight nine
              C/G
You get your shuffle back in line
    G                                             Am
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
    G                                             Am (Intro Riff)
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again

(Instrumental)
Am - C - C/Em - Em - Am

         F
And it's one two three
        C/G
On the wrong side of the lee
              G
What were you meant for?
              Am
Whatever you're meant for?

          F
And it's seven eight nine
              C/G
You get your shuffle back in line
    G                                             Am
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
    G                                             Am
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
    G                                             Am 
And if you ever make it to ten you won't make it again
(Variations of Intro Riff)
