"Rocky Mountain Mines" Lyrics [edit]
by Lost Dogs | from the album The Best Of The Lost Dogs
 

Some say thereís ghosts in the hills, and theyíre black as the coal,
And voices that scream in the night from the deep, dark below,
There was poor Ivy and Scratch, and friends too many to name, who were caught in a thundering landslide, and there theyíll remain.

And I cry, ďOh, Daddy, oh, Dad, donít go,Ē
He wonít be coming home, no,
And mother, dear mum donít you know Iím feeling so old and alone?
Iím the son next in line for the black lung dying,
And just a few come back from the Rocky Mountain mines.

Weíre much too poor to escape the weight of the earth,
In tunnels and dust, and fear, we will measure our worth,
Hereís our bones for the soil, our blood for the land,
Our souls for sweet Jesus, our bodies be damned.

And I cried, ďOh, Daddy, oh, Dad, donít go,Ē
He wonít be coming home, no,
And mother, dear mum donít you know Iím feeling so old and alone?
Iím the son next in line for the black lung dying,
And just a few come back from the Rocky Mountain mines.

Well sometimes I wonder where my Daddy's gone,
But I know heís gone to the wilderness, and he ainít coming home,
Then I get to wondering when itíll be my turn to lie down in that lonesome place, Lord, down under the ground.

Itís said the mark of Cain is on the miners head, and it donít wash with lye soap Ďtil heís good and heís dead,
I saw my Daddy wave from the top of the hill.
He said, ďCome along, sonĒ
I said, ďSoon I will.Ē

And I cry, ďDaddy, oh Dad, donít, go,Ē
He wonít be coming home, no,
And mother, dear mom donít you know Iím feeling so old and alone?
ĎCause Iím the son next in line for the black lung dying,
And just a few come back from the Rocky Mountain mines,
And just a few come back from the Rocky Mountain mines.
