The Lyrics

Dirty job..and they knew it
But someone..has to do it,
For kids and a wife,
They suffer the strife,
Workin' in a coal mine under land

Gallant men..lower level
In the den..of the devil,
Great danger it has,
Explosions and gas,
Workin' in a coal mine under land

Ridin' down each morning takes a bold man,
But they'll hear no songs of praises sung
By the time they're thirty, they're an old man,
And prayin' they will never get black lung..

Holed away..like a mole is
Humbling..to the soul is,
They're breathin' coal dust
And in God they trust,
Workin' in a coal mine under land

Workin' in a coal mine under land

Outstanding tribute to some real heroes, men who risk their lives every day to provide this country's energy. The contrast between snow and coal is quite well executed here. Snow is only pretty because we have warm homes to take shelter from it.
