[Verse 1]

D 
There was a grief among the people, 

in that northern Timmons town 
     A                         G              D
When somebody yelled fire, the mine is burnin down
D
Then rushing to the surface came those McIntyre men
          A                               G             D
Then they readied and prepared to let the fire fighters in


[Chorus]

D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the mine


[Verse 2]
D
It was February second in the year of sixty five
        A                     G           D
A miner life was taken by the carbon monoxide 
D
The gas had been created , way down a mile or so
       A                      G               D
In the McIntyre hell fire six Thousand feet below


[Chorus]

D         G         A           D
There's a fire, way down in the mine


[Verse 3]

D 
The call went through the northland

For men to fight the flame
     A                      G                    D
From Sudbury to Noranda and from everywhere they came
D 
With oxygen and gas masks, they worked for a month of days
     A                         G                 D
In a 150 degrees of heat, they faught that gassy blaze

[Chorus]

D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the mine


[Verse 4]

D 
The deadly gas kept rising, in the McIntyre high
       A 
Til it spread through the walls and the fire doors
       G                  D
To the Hollinger mine nearby 
D 
For nearly a thousand miners now, ther was no work below
    A                                  G               D
The word came from the office, boys we have to let you go


[Chorus]

D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the mine


[Verse 5]

D 
The smiles of hope now faded, many faces wore a frown
        A                              G              D
Must we see our children hungry , must have leave the town
D 
Will they have to close the mine up

Bringing trouble strife and woe
             A                       G                   D
Or will they beat the gassy hellfire six thousand feet below


[Chorus]

D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the mine


[Verse 6]

D
Then at last it was all over, they'd sealed the fire in
      A 
As it died they called the miners, 
G                   D
Slowly back to work again
D 
Some may say that it was nothing, and the world may pass it by
        A                                 G         D
But the people up in Timmins, will always hear that cry

D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the hole
D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the hole
D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the hole
D         G        A           D
There's a fire way down in the hole
