Lyrics "Springhill Mining Disaster": Drucker Version

In the town of Springhill, you don't sleep easy
Often the Earth will tremble and roll
When the Earth is restless miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal
Bone and blood is the price of coal

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Late in the year of '58
Day still comes and the sun still shines
But it's dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine
Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine

Down at the coal-face, miners working
Rattle of the belt and the cutter's blade
Rumble of rock, and the walls close 'round
The living and the dead men two miles down
Living and the dead men two miles down

Twelve men lay two miles from the pit-shaft
Twelve men lay in the dark and sang
Long hot days in the miners tomb
It was three feet high and a hundred long
Three feet high and a hundred long

Three days passed and the lamps gave out
And Kaehler Brushen, he up and said
"There's no more water, nor light, nor bread
So we'll live on songs and hope instead
Live on songs and hope instead."

Listen for the shouts of the bare-faced miners
Listen through the rubble for a rescue team
Six hundred feet of coal and slag
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam

Eight days passed and some were rescued
Leaving the dead to lie alone
Through all their lives they dug a grave
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
