[Verse 1]
E                     A
Dear Miss Loretta, I ain’t ever met ya
         B                         E  
But I’m lonely tonight and I just betcha
                               A
You might have some wisdom to pull off that shelf
      B                                      E 
Your songs were all fun ‘til I lived them myself

[Chorus]
           E
I ain’t a coal miner’s daughter
         A
But my grandmother was
         B   
Must be whiskey in the water
         E
Must be bourbon in the blood
       E
I’m a long way from Kentucky
         A
But the hurtin’s the same
       B                      E
Now I know why you sang that way

[Verse 2]
         E    
Oh what ended up tough
    A
I started out broken
      B
What ended up lost
               E
I started out hopin’
   E                     A     
A lifetime of pain was three minutes long
     B    
And you weren’t ashamed
                      E
When the world sang along

[Chorus]
           E
I ain’t a coal miner’s daughter
         A
But my grandmother was
         B   
Must be whiskey in the water
         E
Must be bourbon in the blood
       E
I’m a long way from Kentucky
         A
But the hurtin’s the same
       B                      E
Now I know why you sang that way

Dear Miss Loretta
    B
We both grew up too fast
       F#m
And I wish you could tell me
     B
How you made it last

[Chorus]
           E
I ain’t a coal miner’s daughter
          A 
But I’ve sung it all my life
    B    
I ain’t been a widow
          E
But I’ve been an ex-wife
        E
And I hear your truth
       A         F#
And I feel your pain
       B                      E 
Now I know why you sang that way
        B                      E
Yeah I know why you sang that way
