American Ballads and Folk Songs
He's only a miner, been killed underground, He's only a miner and one more is gone, Killed by an accident, there's no one to tell, His mining's all over, poor miner farewell.
He left his dear wife and little ones too,
To win them a living as all miners doj
But while he was working for those whom he loved,
He met a sad fate from a bowlder above.
A miner is gone 5 we'll see him no more.
May God be with the miner wherever he may go.
God pity the miner, protect him as well,
Shield him from danger while down in the ground.
