lyrics

The coal country is calling your name
Black in the day, as in the night
‘Til we follow that North Star again.

Hold on to the one thing that animates everything
In your heart.
I know you’ll be fine out there on your own
I think you deserve a new start.

We are summers and shadows apart
The muses of autumn, we write the grey sky
We are blackest shades of the part.

Hold on to the one who animates
Every dream in your heart.
How I hope you quiet your pain, and use it
For beautiful art.

‘Til we’re sharing that same old blue vest
With its pockets and feathers and down and the rest
‘Til we’re ambling o’er ashes again.

The coal country is calling your name
Black in the day, as in the night
‘Til we follow that North Star again.
‘Til we follow that North Star, ‘til we follow that North Star.
