Deep Mine Blues
Verse 1
I swore before, I was a man
I'd not go down in the mines
Like my dad and his dad
and friends by the score
who are crippled and bent at the spine

You'll never see the light of day
You can't wash that coal dust away
You'll never gain as much as you lose
When you're singin the deep mine blues

Verse 2
Down in the city, jobs they were scarce
Blue Diamond needed some men
They put me on diggin' #9 coal
alongside my kinfolk and friends

Repeat Chorus

Sing it high, sing it low
sing the song, however you choose
you go to work when the whistle blows
and you're singin the deep mine blues
