Socalled (http://www.socalledmusic.com/) / Springhill Mine Disaster / album: Sleepover / 2011

(originally starting with Dm, for that version transpose 5 whole steps up)

       Am      C           Am    C 
In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Am          C            D         Am                            
Down in the dark of the Cumberland Mine
        Am           D            C      E                                
There's blood on the coal and the miners lie
       Am         C         Am       C
In the roads that never saw sun nor sky
Am         C         Am       E
Roads that never saw sun nor sky 


       Am       C              Am           C
In the town of Springhill, you don't sleep easy
Am         C          D          Am                            
Often the earth will tremble and roar
         Am        D         C      E                                
When the earth is restless, miners die
Am       C            Am       C
Bone and blood is the price of coal.
Am       C            Am       E 
Bone and blood is the price of coal.

  
       Am       C          Am   C
In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Am          C       D     Am                            
Late in the year of fifty eight
    Am        D             C         E                                
The day still comes and the sun still shines
         Am           C           Am         C
But it's dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. 
Am          C            Am         E
Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. 


Am          C          Am     C
Down at the coal face, miners working
Am            C            D        Am                            
Rattle of the belt and the cutter’s blade
Am            D            C            E                                
Rumble of the rock and the walls closed round
      Am              C       Am        C
(The) living and the dead men two miles down
Am             C        Am           E
living and the dead men two miles down


Am          C      Am             C
Twelve men lay two miles from the pitshaft
Am         C           D       Am                            
Twelve men lay in the dark and sang
Am        D          C       E                                
Long hot days in the miners tomb
         Am         C          Am       C
(It) was three feet high and a hundred long
Am         C          Am       E
three feet high and a hundred long


Am          C             Am         C
Three days passed and the lamps gave out and
Am    C            D      Am                            
Kaela Brushton got up and said
        Am       D      C       E                                
There’s no more water, light or bread
         Am      C         Am    C
So we'll live on songs and hope instead.
Am      C         Am    E 
live on songs and hope instead


Am             C             Am        C
Listen for the shouts of the barefaced miners
Am              C            D      Am                            
Listen thru the rubble for a rescue team
    Am      D       C        E                                
Six hundred tons of coal and slag
Am      C            Am         C
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam.
Am     C             Am         E 
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam.

          
Am         C        Am        C
Eight long days and some were rescued
Am          C       D    Am                            
Leaving the dead to lie alone
     Am        D          C         E                                
Thru all their lives they dug their grave
    Am       C           Am      C
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
    Am       C           Am      E
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
