​Quecreek

This song is by Buddy Miller and appears on the album Midnight And Lonesome (2002).

At the quecreek mine nine miners went down
Two hundred and forty feet deep in the ground
The night shift went a mile when there came a shout
Somebody's hit water we gotta get out

It was over their heads and too fast to outrun
Together they were tied to live or die as one
Help came from all round
But then the drill stripped and broke
So the men penned good-byes and wives hoped against hope

When the waters come up
When you go through the flood
In the Lord you can trust
He will be there with us

Now Jesus was laid in a hole in the ground
He was dead, but the third day God's hand brought Him out
And the miners were buried three nights and three days
But like Jesus Sunday morning all nine men were raised
