To Live and Die Underground

from by Copperfield

lyrics

sound the alarm for the whole town to know
we lost another man (we lost another man)

send his wife her Easter ham
and a condolence letter

in your finest print make sure you use the company's letterhead

and can you tell his eldest son
we got a job for him down there
grab a helmet, pack your lunch
punch in and let the lights go out

tomorrow morning you're going down the hole (kid)

to live and die underground

day in day out
black lungs and broken bones
dynamite, picks and shovels
to the sound of sad work songs

that's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

TO LIVE AND DIE UNDERGROUND

sound the alarm for the whole town to know
we lost another man (we lost another man)

send his mother a christmas card
and a wreath of flowers

and could you tell his youngest brother
we got a job for him

like father, like son (and) from brother to brother
that's how it was for generations
in search of copper and gold
