lyrics

That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh

A man wants to work,
He don't have a job,
He's got cold hands,
And coal in his scruff, yeah,
He's got no money,
Hardly enough,
He's got no money,
Hardly enough, and,

His boy went to work,
Later that day,
The wall caved in, now he's
Here to stay.
His family stays hungry,
And unpaid,
His family stays hungry,
And unpaid, oh.

That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh
That's just like life on the mines, oh

Now I got a gun,
A gun, a gun,
I kill all the miners
One by one
Well I got a gun,
Didn't you hear?
I'll see you at your grave
This time next year.

Oh, I've I got a gun,
A gun for sure,
I ain't gonna work
At this mine no more.
