Dave Gunning - The Miner's Song


CAPO: 4th Fret



INTRO: C  G  Am  F  Am  G  F  G

C                            F            C
Billy's first breath was the last for his mother
                   Am          G                 C
He was born on the shores of a town called Glace Bay
                           F            C
And all that he had was himself and his father
                                G             C
And he lived in a house about a mile down the way


                          F           C
His dad was a big man, he worked as a miner
           Am         G             C
Billy grew more to be like him each day
                                F             C
'Cause every boy's dream was to work with his father
                     G         C
In the mine that ran under the bay


CHORUS:
    G               G7         C
"My son," he said, "don't be a miner,
            G                        C
'Cause it's hard work and too little pay.
       G                        C         F
You'll dig in that hole for the company's coal
    C            G            C
And wind up just digging your grave."


                     F          C
Billy grew older but never grew wiser
             Am           G           C
Fighting and drinking his young life away
                                  F         C
He reached for the top, but wound up on the bottom
                     G         C
Of the mine that ran under the bay


CHORUS:
    G               G7         C
"My son," he said, "don't be a miner,
            G                        C
'Cause it's hard work and too little pay.
       G                        C         F
You'll dig in that hole for the company's coal
    C            G            C
And wind up just digging your grave."


INSTRUMENTAL: C  G  C  G  C  G  C  F  C  G  C  G  Am  G  C


                              F          C
They say that it happened one morning in April
             Am      G          C
A cave-in at Number Eleven that day
                       F               C
Billy got there as his dad reached the surface
             G            C
In his dying words he did say:


CHORUS:
    G               G7         C
"My son," he said, "don't be a miner,
            G                        C
'Cause it's hard work and too little pay.
       G                        C         F
You'll dig in that hole for the company's coal
    C            G            C
And wind up just digging your grave."


CHORUS:
    G               G7         C
"My son," he said, "don't be a miner,
            G                        C
'Cause it's hard work and too little pay.
       G                        C         F
You'll dig in that hole for the company's coal
    C            G            C
And wind up just digging your grave.
             G                        C         F
Yeah, you'll dig in that hole for the company's coal
    C            G            C        Am   G   C
And wind up just digging your grave."
