Dream Of A Miner's Child

This song is by Chuck Ragan.

A miner was leavin' her home for work
When she heard her little child scream
She went to the side of her little girl's bed
Oh mama, I've had such a dream

Oh, mama, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
Oh, mama, dear mama, please don't go away
For I never could live without you

I dreamed that the mines were all raging with fire
And the miners all fought for their lives
Then the scene changed at the mouth of the mine
It was covered with husbands and wives

Oh, mama, don't go to the mines today
For dreams have so often come true
Oh, mama, dear mama, please don't go away
For I never could live without you

Go down to the village and tell your dear friends
As sure as the bright stars do shine
There's something a-going to happen today
Please mama, don't go to the mines
