Kentucky third graders pay tribute to coal trucks with parody video

A third grade class from Pike County, Kentucky went viral after posting their tribute to Kentucky coal mining.

Their song, “Mine the Coal,” was written by teacher Erica Rowe and sang to the tune of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off.” The video was published April 3, 2018 and has been viewed nearly 200,000 times.

“Mine the Coal,” is mostly about mining work, but you can find references to the work of coal haulers during the 1:30 – 1:40 portion of the video.

I’m drivin’ down the road (drivin’ down the road)
I load the truck before I go (truck before I go)
Haulin’ coal is what I know (mm-hmm)

The students earned third place in a regional competition.
