Gordon Lightfoot - Mother Of A Miner's Child


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO:] G

[VERSE 1:]

She is my flower
                       C                 G
And she blooms for the one who loves her best
    C              D                  G
The miners stop to watch her when she walks
     D                              C
They know her love is not for sale
                                G     D/F#
She will never fail me 'cause I know
              Em
I watched her grow
    C           Am
The mother of a miner's child
C              D                G       D
Waits for me beside the kitchen door


[VERSE 2:]
          G
She is my light
                        C              G
In this place where the darkness never ends
       C                  D                 G
She'll guide me where the tunnels twist and bend
          D                           C
She's the only one who listens when I tell her
                      G      D/F#
I got less than I can spend
              Em
She knows the pace
    C           Am
Oh, mother of a miner's child
C             D                 G       F   C   G
Wash away the coal dust from my face


[VERSE 3:]
                       
When the night shift's done
                         C            G
She'll be waiting by the table when I come
C              D               G
Searching for another dream to chase
    D
Oh, mother of a miner's child
  C                                   G
I know that you still think about the day
     D/F#            Em
When we'll be moving on
  C               Am
Remember dear old daddy and
    C              D             G     D
The promise that I made to carry on


[VERSE 4:]
            G
Sometimes I smile
                      C             G
In the cage where the cables softly hum
    C              D                 G
I'd curse that old straw boss to the bone
        D
But the mother of a miner's child
   C                                 G     D/F#
Is waiting for her pay-check to come home
          Em
Come Saturday
    C            Am
And he is just a miner's boy
  C                 D             G     F   C   G
I hope that he will find a better way


[VERSE 5:]
         
She is my flower
                       C                 G
And she blooms for the one who loves her best
    C              D                  G
The miners stop to watch her when she walks
     D                              C
They know her love is not for sale
                                G     D/F#
She will never fail me 'cause I know
              Em
I watched her grow
    C           Am
The mother of a miner's child
C            D                  G      F   C   G
Waits for me beside the kitchen door
