James Keelaghan - Hillcrest Mine


CAPO: 4th Fret


INTRO: D  A  D  A  D  A  D  A  G  D  A  G  D  


Down in the mines of the Crowsnest Pass
                         A
It's the men that die in labour
G                      D
Sweating coal from the womb of the pit
         A                  G
It's the smell of life they savour
    D
And in that mine, young man, you'll find
                   A
A wealth of broken dreams
   G                       D
As long and as dark and as black and as wide
       A                     G
As the coal in The Hillcrest seam


CHORUS:
                       D
And they say you don't go (say you don't go)
                 G                     D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
                       A
And they say you don't go
                 D                     A
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
            D         A
'Cause it's one short step
          G                  D
You might leave this world behind
                       A
And they say you don't go 
                 G                     A  D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine



I've heard it whispered in the light of dawn
                        A
That mountain sometimes moves
G                      D
That bodes ill for the morning shift
        A                      G
And you know what you're gonna lose
      D
Don't go my son where the deep coal runs
                                  A
Turn your back to the mine on the hill
              G                         D
'Cause if the dust and the dark and the gas don't getcha
         A                    G
Then the goons and the bosses will


CHORUS:
                       D
And they say you don't go (say you don't go)
                 G                     D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
                       A
And they say you don't go
                 G                     A
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
            D         A
'Cause it's one short step
          G                  D
You might leave this world behind
                       A
And they say you don't go 
                 G                     A  D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine


INSTRUMENTAL: 



Well son, I'm gonna open up
                  A
I'm gonna have my say
       G                     D
You'll get no peace from the Hillcrest Mine
          A                  G
'Cept the peace of any early grave
D
Go out and work for the workers' rights
                         A
Go work for the workers' needs
      G                 D
Don't stay down here to toil for your buck
        A                    G
To be a tool for the owner's greed


CHORUS:
                       D
And they say you don't go (say you don't go)
                 G                     D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
                       A
And they say you don't go
                 G                     A
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
            D         A
'Cause it's one short step
          G                  D
You might leave this world behind
                       A
And they say you don't go 
                 G                     A  D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine


CHORUS:
                       D
And they say you don't go (say you don't go)
                 G                     D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
                       A
And they say you don't go
                 G                     A
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
            D         A
'Cause it's one short step
          G                  D
You might leave this world behind
                       A
And they say you don't go 
                 G                     A  D
Say you don't go down in the Hillcrest Mine
