Coal mining. A coal-miner’s daughter and the heartache that comes with it: “All those nights of feeling like he couldn’t breathe, wanted to give a different life to us. I get to claim it, he gets to smother.” Williams rich vocals hold sorrow and longing, and the album promises to be one of this year’s favorites.
From the first-line echo of the original coal miner’s daughter Loretta Lynn, this song pays homage to a succession of coal mining forebears and talks about living life in the shadow of the harrowing vocation—how it comes to bear on the body, the spirit, and the people making a home in fraught yet beloved coal country. ‘But these are the only ones that watch us ripe and rot / and hold the bones of both our living and our dead,’ references the coal-rich Central Appalachian mountains, beneath which the people both toil and find their final resting place, and it borrows from a line in Shakespeare’s As You Like It: ‘And so, from hour to hour, we ripe and ripe / And then, from hour to hour, we rot and rot.’ — Tiffany Williams
