"Harry Stone (Hearts of Coal)" - John Tams - Unity - 2000
             Transcribed by wranglingoutlaw

C                   Am
 Harry Stone was a miner born 
G                    C
 He worked to win His wages 
G         C
 Riding down the cages 
Am          G
 And raging at the seams 

C                 Am
 He worked his stall from dusk till dawn 
G                C
 Sweet sweat and raw endeavour 
G               C
 Black diamonds bound together 
Am               G
 By a strong and simple means 

C                   Am
 He met a girl from Ironville 
G                     C       
 He promised He would love Her 
G              C
 He’d put no-one above Her 
Am             G
 At last They went to town 

C                     Am
 He promised He would love Her 
        G                        C
Til the blackbirds stopped their singing 
G            C
 The mission bell stopped ringing 
Am                    G
 And they closed the coal pit down 

Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
Dm        F         C      G
 Left out   in the cold , cold 
Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
     Dm         F         C        G
They broke the hearts of coal, Hearts of coal 

C                           Am
 They raised Their children chapel proud 
     G                     C
The lamb and the flag to guide Them 
G                 C
 They each strove to provide Them 
Am               G
 With a sense of right from wrong 

C                         Am
 And when the strikes and lock-outs came 
G                       C
 And bare-foot hunger tried Them 
G              C
 All hopes were denied Them 
Am          G
 Their unity held strong 

Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
Dm        F         C      G
 Left out   in the cold , cold 
Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
     Dm         F         C        G
They broke the hearts of coal, Hearts of coal

C               Am
 Forty years of coal-dust 
G                    C
 Is a lot of pain to carry 
G                           C
 It made a cripple out of Harry 
Am                       G
 But His family came and took up His tools 

C                            Am
 And they faced the Orgreave cavalry 
G                             C
 While the world looked on and wondered 
G                         C
 Their right to work was plundered 
       Am                G
By the statesman-ship of fools 

Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
Dm        F         C      G
 Left out   in the cold , cold 
Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
     Dm         F         C        G
They broke the hearts of coal, Hearts of coal

C             Am
 The ‘Enemy Within’ They cried 
         G            C
And the boney finger pointed 
    G                    C
Dripping gold from the anointed 
Am                     G
 At the beggar and Her bowl 

C                  Am
 And just like the Union said He would 
G                   C
 The axeman came in dancing 
G                  C
 His psychopathic prancing 
        Am                G
Chopped out the hearts of coal 

Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
Dm        F         C      G
 Left out   in the cold , cold 
Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
     Dm         F         C        G
They broke the hearts of coal, Hearts of coal

Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
Dm        F         C       G
 Left out   in the cold ,  cold 
Dm         Am                 G
 Where are You tonight now We need You ?
     Dm         F         C        G
They broke the hearts of coal, Hearts of coal

C                     Am
 He promised He would love Her 
         G                        C
Til the blackbirds stopped Their singing 
G              C
 The mission bells stopped ringing 
Am                    G
 And They closed the coal pit down
