    Lyrics

    Coal miners, old and young, dirty and dusty coveralls
    Silver lunch can in hand
    Going down the rake, father and son
    Carrying on that age old tradition
    You see they are working men

    [Chorus]
    It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
    And I swear by God if I ever see the sun
    Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
    Then I will never again go down underground

    At the age of sixteen years, he quarreled with his peers
    And he swears there will never be another on
    In the dark recess of the mine, where you age before your time
    And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs

    [Chorus]

    At the age of sixty-four, if he lives that long,
    he'll greet you at the door
    And he'll gently lead you by the arm
    In the dark recess of the mine, he can take you back in time
    Tell you of the hardships that were there

    [Chorus: x2]
