Springhill Mining Disaster
By Dubliners

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

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

Verse 3

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

Verse 4


Am         D            Am         G 
Three days past and the lamps gave out
Am          C           D          C 
And Kaela Brushton got up and and said
Am               D        C         Am    
We have no more water, or light, or bread
Am                D       Am       G 
So we'll live on song and hope instead. 
Am      D        Am      G 
live on song and hope instead

Verse 5

Am             D             Am          G 
Listen for the shouts of the black faced miners
Am               C          D       C 
Listen thru the rubble for a rescue team
Am            D      C        Am    
Three hundred ton of coal and slag
Am        D          Am          G 
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam. 
Am         D         Am          G 
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam.

Verse 6

Am             D       Am         G 
Twelve days passed and some were rescued
Am          C       D   C 
Leaving the dead to lie alone
Am             D         C         Am    
Thru all their days they dug their grave
Am            D          Am       G
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
Am            D          Am       G 
Two miles of earth for a marking stone.
