Miner's Lullaby (Coorie Doon)
words and music Matt McGinn

Coorie doon, Coorie doon, Coorie Doon, my darling, Coorie doon the day.
Coorie doon, Coorie doon, Coorie Doon, my darling, Coorie doon the day.

Lie doon, my dear, and in your ear,
To help you close your eye, I'll sing
a song, a slumber song,
A miner's lullaby.

Your daddy's doon
the mine, my darling,
Doon in the Curbly Main,
Your daddy's howkin' coal,
my darling,
For his ain wee wean.

There's darkness doon the
mine my darling,
Darkness, dust and damp,
But we must have oor heat, oor
light,
Oor fire and our lamp.

Your daddy coories doon, my darling,
Doon in a three foot seam,
So you can coorie doon my darling,
Coorie doon
and dream.
