Am D Am G

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia

Am C D C

Down in the dark of the Cumberland mine

Am D C Am

There's blood on the coal and the miners lie

Am D Am G

In roads that never saw sun nor sky,

Am D Am G

Roads that never saw sun nor sky

 

Am-D-Am-G

Am-D-Am-G

 

In the town of Springhill, don't sleep easy

Often the earth will tremble and roar

But when the earth is restless miners die

Bone and blood is the price of coal,

Bone and blood is the price of coal

 

Listen to the shouts of the black faced miners

Listen to the call of the rescue team

We have no water, light or bread

So we're livin' on songs and hope instead,

Livin' on songs and hope instead

 

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia

Down in the dark of the Cumberland mine

There's blood on the coal and the miners lie

In roads that never saw sun nor sky,

Roads that never saw sun nor sky

 

In the town of Springhill, don't sleep easy

Often the earth will tremble and roar

But when the earth is restless miners die

Bone and blood is the price of coal,

Bone and blood is the price of coal,

Bone and blood is the price of coal

 

Outro:

 

Am-Dm-Am-Dm (same as intro)
