Dirty Business
(John Dawson)
Transcribed by: Pete Millett
Verse 1:
         A
Well the marshall came to town
And his hat was pulled way down
He looked like he had business on his mind
He didn't stop to say, he just rode along his way
Until he stopped in at the office of the mine

Chorus:
A  A
      Dirty business,
A  A
      Dirty business,
A  A                         D
      Dirty business down in Coal Creek
E  E                              D                A
      Dirty Business down in {on} Coal Creek, this morning.

Verse 2:
Well I make two bucks a day
That ain't a healthy pay
My kids {dogs} are just beginning to get sick
There's talk been going 'round
How their gonna shut us {the old mine} down
If the man don't come and fix things pretty quick.

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
Pretty soon there was a crowd
It was getting pretty loud
And the men all said they'd be no work today
But the owner wouldn't budge
He just set there like a judge
And he wouldn't give a nickle more in pay

(Chorus)

Verse 4:
Just then they heard a sound
That came rumblin' from the ground
And everyone went rushing for the door
It finally left no doubt
The mine was not an issue anymore

(Chorus)

{ } = JB word changes..  i.e.  kids = {dogs}
