Song Lyrics

It’s a pleasure to be here
This is eh, this is a song that your lot have inspired me…with
It’s your version of, eh, Springhill Mining Disaster

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Down in the dark of the Cumberland mine
There’s blood on the coal and the miners lie
In roads that never seen sun nor sky
Roads that never saw sun nor sky

In the town of Springhill you don’t sleep easy
Often the earth will tremble and roll
When the earth is restless miners die
But the 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 ‘88
Well the day still comes and the sun still shines
But it’s dark as a grave in the Cumberland mine
It’s dark at the grave in the Cumberland mine

Listen to the shouts of the black-faced miners
Listen to the call of a rescue team
We have no water or no brans
So we’re living on songs and hope instead
We’re living on songs and hope instead

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Down in the dark of a Cumberland mine
There’s blood on the coal and the miners lie
In roads that never saw sun nor sky
Roads that never saw sun nor sky

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Often the earth will tremble and roll
When the earth is restless mine, miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal
Bone and blood is the price of coal
Bone and blood is the price of coal

Thank you
