The Lyrics Are Below

 

Red Hill Mining Town

 

From father to son the blood runs thin

See the faces frozen still against the wind

The seam is split - the coal face cracked

The lines are long - there's no going back

Through hands of steel and heart of stone

Our labour day has come and gone

And you leave me holding on

In Red Hill Town see the lights go down

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting - I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

The glass is cut - the bottle run dry

Our love runs cold in the caverns of the night

We're wounded by fear - injured in doubt

I can lose myself - you I can't live without

Because you keep me holding on

In Red Hill Town as the lights go down

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting - hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

 

And we scorched the earth - set fire to the sky

We stooped so low to reach so high

A link is lost - the chain undone

We wait all day for the night to come

And it comes

Like a hunter child

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm still waiting - I'm hanging on

We see love slowly stripped away

Love has seen a better day

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

I'm hanging on

You're all that's left to hold on to

The lights go down on Red Hill

The lights go down on Red Hill Town

The lights go down on Red Hill
