Lyrics

It’s cold and dark down here
My dear
And I swear that I’ll be back soon

Under my nails there’s dirt and coal
The light on my hat went out, I can’t see a soul
Twelve young kids to tend to
And you’re sleeping alone
But I swear
But I swear, swear that I’ll get out of here

It’s been eight long days since I’ve seen the sun
My faith is shaking, praying for everyone
But we’ll keep singing, the hymns keep us strong
And I swear
But I swear, swear that I’ll get out of here

But if this mine should be my grave
Tell the children to always be brave
They’ll miss their father, I’ll miss them too
Please remember, I’ll always love you.
