       Em      D           Em    D 
In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Em          G            A         Em                            
Down in the dark of the Cumberland Mine
        Em           A            D      B                                
There's blood on the coal and the miners lie
       Em         D         Em       D
In the roads that never saw sun nor sky
Em         D         Em       B
Roads that never saw sun nor sky 


       Em       D              Em           D
In the town of Springhill, you don't sleep easy
Em         G          A          Em                            
Often the earth will tremble and roar
         Em        A         D      B                                
When the earth is restless, miners die
Em       D            Em       D
Bone and blood is the price of coal.
Em       D            Em       B 
Bone and blood is the price of coal.

  
       Em       D          Em   D
In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia
Em          G       A     Em                            
Late in the year of fifty eight
    Em        A             D         B                                
The day still comes and the sun still shines
         Em           D           Em         D
But it's dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. 
Em          D            Em         B
Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. 


Em          D          Em     D
Down at the coal face, miners working
Em            G            A        Em                            
Rattle of the belt and the cutter’s blade
Em            A            D            B                                
Rumble of the rock and the walls closed round
      Em              D       Em        D
(The) living and the dead men two miles down
Em             D        Em           B
living and the dead men two miles down


Em          D      Em             D
Twelve men lay two miles from the pitshaft
Em         G           A       Em                            
Twelve men lay in the dark and sang
Em        A          D       B                                
Long hot days in the miners tomb
         Em         D          Em       D
(It) was three feet high and a hundred long
Em         D          Em       B
three feet high and a hundred long


Em          D             Em         D
Three days passed and the lamps gave out and
Em    G            A      Em                            
Kaela Brushton got up and said
        Em       A      D       B                                
There’s no more water, light or bread
         Em      D         Em    D
So we'll live on songs and hope instead.
Em      D         Em    B 
live on songs and hope instead


Em             D             Em        D
Listen for the shouts of the barefaced miners
Em              G            A      Em                            
Listen thru the rubble for a rescue team
    Em      A       D        B                                
Six hundred tons of coal and slag
Em      D            Em         D
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam.
Em     D             Em         B 
Hope imprisoned in a three foot seam.

          
Em         D        Em        D
Eight long days and some were rescued
Em          G       A    Em                            
Leaving the dead to lie alone
     Em        A          D         B                                
Thru all their lives they dug their grave
    Em       D           Em      D
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
    Em       D           Em      B
Two miles of earth for a marking stone
