       the chords, but picking them.  Generally, they
       are picked in this fashion:

       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 roads that never saw sun nor sky,
Am         D         Am      G
Roads that never saw sun nor sky

Am-D-Am-G
Am-D-Am-G

In the town of Springhill, don't sleep easy
Often the earth will tremble and roar
But when the earth is restless miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal,
Bone and blood is the price of coal

Listen to the shouts of the black faced miners
Listen to the call of the rescue team
We have no water, light or bread
So we're livin' on songs and hope instead,
Livin' on songs and hope instead

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

In the town of Springhill, don't sleep easy
Often the earth will tremble and roar
But when the earth is restless miners die
Bone and blood is the price of coal,
Bone and blood is the price of coal,
Bone and blood is the price of coal

Outro:

Am-Dm-Am-Dm (same as intro)
