Coalman

 I tell my troubles to the coalman 
 He's a coalman but he understands 
 He's not such a very very old man 
 He's a soul man and he takes my hand 
 He makes a man feel good when he's down 
 Head is touching the ground 
 He's going to help you if he can 
 He's a coalman 

 I've been waiting for the coalman 
 He's a whole man and he treats me nice 
 Ev'rybody needs a coalman 
 When you're low man , you can get advice 
 He makes a man feel good when he's down 
 Head is touching the ground 
 He's going to help you if he can 
 He's a coalman 

 I need her loving so much the feeling is too much to bear 
 You've got to have somebody, when she's not there 

 I tell my troubles to the coalman 
 He's a coalman but he understands 
 He's not such a very very old man 
 He's a soul man and he takes my hand 
 He makes a man feel good when he's down 
 Head is touching the ground 
 He's going to help you if he can 
 He's a coalman 

 I need her loving so much the feeling is too much to bear 
 You've got to have somebody when she's not there 

 I tell my troubles to the coalman 
 He's a coalman but he understands 
 He's not such a very very old man 

 He's a soul man and he takes my hand 
 He's gonna help you when he's down 
 When your head is touching the ground 
 And he'll help you if he can 
 He's a coalman 
 Coalman, coalman , coalman
