I'm a guitar player singer always on the lookout for new songs. Some friends of mine recorded this one.
Grab your pick and shovel and your miners light
don't forget your fuses and your dynamite
Put on your kneepads and your safety toes
we're goin to a coalmine where the coal is low
Ridin on a lizard in 30" coal
see the cable sparkin watch the little wheels roll
Oh lord have mercy on a miner's soul
down on your poor knees in a 30" coal
2nd verse
Timber up your heading, set your wedges tight Or your wife and children ,won't see you tonight
spread out a little rock dust spread a little bit more To keep that coal dust, on the minin floor
any other folk musicians out there? Larry Bowen
