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

Chorus:
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

Bridge:
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
