Black Rock City

Ain’t no light, ain’t no day
Getting by on a miner’s pay
There just ain’t no other way
Here in black rock city
Ain’t no soul, ain’t no sound
Living life down in the ground
That’s what makes the world go round
Here in Black Rock City.

Verse 1:
When I was just a kid, doing what my grandpa did
Now so many years have passed me by
The colors of my youth fade to black,
the cold hard truth
Under ground the sun don’t ever shine.

Pre-chorus:
Some old day I hope to find
A way to leave this town behind.

CHORUS:
Ain’t no light, ain’t no day
Getting by on a miner’s pay
There just ain’t no other way
Here in black rock city
Ain’t no soul, ain’t no sound
Living life down in the ground
That’s what makes the world go round
Here in Black Rock City.

Verse 2:
Tomorrow’s bound to be the same for you and me
Wishing I could put this shovel down
Too tired to fight the fight, but I dream every night
That I could ride that coal train out of town 


Pre-chorus:
Some old day I hope to find
A way to leave this town behind.

CHORUS:
Ain’t no light, ain’t no day
Getting by on a miner’s pay
There just ain’t no other way
Here in black rock city
Ain’t no soul, ain’t no sound
Living life down in the ground
That’s what makes the world go round
Here in Black Rock City.
