THE MINER.
Copyright, 1875, by M. Gray.
Words and Music by Fell Marti.

A thousand feet in the earth I delve,
With hammer and pick, with mattock and helve,
With hammer And pick, with mattock and helve,
Gems and gold from the earth I wrest,
Toil for me And for other's rest.
Through galleries long my lamp doth gleam,
Casting for its golden beam.
Rings each blow above below,
While I sing, "Heave ho! heave ho! heave ho! heave ho!
Delving down below-heave ho! heave ho!
Delving down below, down below, down below."

With every blow that I strike below,
I see flashing forth the bright golden glow,
I see flashing forth the bright golden glow.
Cities fair And the village farm.
All depend on this stalwart arm-
I strike for home, I strike for life,
For my love and loving wife.
As I strike my song shall flow, t"Heave, boys, heave-heave ho! heave ho! heave ho! heave ho!
Delving down below-heave ho! heave ho!
Delving down below, down below, down below.'"
