The Minerís Lifeguard

A minerís life is like a sailor's
But for a ship to cross the waves
Every day his life in danger
Still he ventures being brave
Watch the rocks theyíre falling daily
Careless miners always fail
Keep your hand upon your wages
And your eye upon the scale.
Chorus:
Union miners stand together
Do not heed the ownerís tale
Keep your hand upon your wages
And your eye upon the scale.
2. Youíve been docked and docked again boys
Youíve been loading two to one
What have you to show for working?
Since your mining has begun
Worn out boots and worn out miners
Lungs of stone and children pale
Keep your hand upon your wages
And your eye upon the scale.
Chorus:

3. In conclusion bear in memory
Keep the password in your mind
God provides for every worker
When in union they combine
Stand like men and lean together
Victory for you will prevail
Keep your hand upon your wages
And your eye upon the scale.
Chorus:
