OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, I was born a coal miners daughter
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler

Circle left
Allemande left and weave
We were poor but we had love, that's one thing my daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around that ring
Down the middle, curlique, walk & dodge
Swing thru so fine, boys run right, bend the line
Right & left thru, slide thru, square thru 3 hands
Swing that corner and promeno
* And everything would start all over at break of morning


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* She'd smile in mommy's understanding way

* Daddy always managed to get the money somewhere

* He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
I remember well the well where I drew water

Circle left
Allemande left and weave
The work we done was hard, at night we'd sleep cause we were tired
I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Well, a lot of the things have changed since way back then
And it's so good to be back home again

Circle left
Allemande left and weave
Not much but the floor, nothin' interesting anymore
'cept the memories of a coal miner's daughter

Coal Miner's Daughter
 
 

Well, I was born a coal miner's daughter
In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were poor but we had love
That's the one thing my Daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man's dollar

My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine
All day long in the field hoeing corn
Mama rocked the baby at night
Read the Bible by a coal oil light
And everything would start all over come break of morn

Daddy loved and raised eight kids on a coal miner's pay
Mama scrubbed our clothes on a washboard every day
I've seen her fingers bleed
To complain there was no need
She'd smile in Mama's understanding way

In the summertime we didn't have shoes to wear
But in the wintertime we'd all get a brand new pair
From a mail-order catalog, money made by selling a hog
Daddy always seemed to get the money somewhere

I'm proud to be a coal miner's daughter
I remember well, the well where I drew water
The work we done was hard
At night we'd sleep, cause we were tired
I never thought I'd ever leave Butcher Holler

Well a lot of things have changed, since way back when
And it's so good to be back home again
Not much left but the floor
Nothing lives here anymore
Just a memory of a coal miner's daughter

Lyrics by Loretta Lynn.
Recorded by Loretta Lynn.
 

Comments

There is a young lady named Shari Brabham who is singing the words to the original song on both the called side and on the instrumental, through the whole music, so the calling is being done over her singing. On the called side, Al Horn is just giving the calls. He is letting the singing do the fill-in. It is dedicated to Ms. Shari Brabham: "Sheri was born in Columbus, OH Aug. 6, '64 being diagnosed for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis at age one and has had 20 operations for joint fusions. Also blind in one eye with partial vision in the other. She was named Little Miss Arthritis in '74 and named the recipient of the Jerry Walsh Courage Award in 1980 and inducted in the Nat'l Honor Society as a senior, Sheri was the first handicap in the Jr-Hi choir and joined the Y.E.S. (wheelchair square dancers) in '80. Sheri sings at many area, state and nat'l square dance functions including the Nationals in Louisville, KY in 1983 and Detroit in 1982. Also the Ohio and W.VA. State Conv's, Danceathons, Telethons for Easter Seals, Oglebayfest and many more too numerous to mention. Sheri performs with the YES wheelchair group also being a dancer in her electric wheelchair. The YES group of handicapped young people range from 16-22 years. The group's reason for existence and purpose is two-fold: The most important is that these young people by their dedicated effort in learning to square dance have proven themselves Handicapable. They deserve the chance to demonstrate in front of large groups of people that they are not useless and to be pitied, but happy and capable. By their tremendous efforts, they are able to encourage other handicapped people to participate in recreational and social activities. This group of beautiful people are currently working to raise $10,000 to enable them to continue performing under the dedicated and capable hands of the YES group leaders and caller, Pam & Jim Cooper, 4856 Brewster Dr., Columbus, OH 43227 of whom we give a big, big thanks for everything they have done!
