lyrics

I once was a coal miner. I worked hard all day
Out here no one admired my dark ash-covered face
So to my home I’d retire with pockets full of pay
Dinner by the fire as the houses go to sleep
Because days are long when you’re out all night
sitting on the grass as you cry
Tears of joy or tears of sorrow the only question’s why?
Why am I out here all night?
I often knew the answer somewhere in the sky
Or maybe it was elsewhere those distant train yard lights
I left that place come winter one cold and foggy night
Hopped a train out westward over the country wide
So now when I’m out at night
I have a buddy at my side
Whether the little dog or the Xmas lights
I know tomorrow is mine
