woodyguth3 Tune Req: My Wee Coal Hole (1) Tune Req: My Wee Coal Hole 30 Dec 08


Hello,
In George Korson's book, "Minstrels of the Mine Patch" he notes the lyrics of a song by William Keating entitled "My Wee Coal Hole". It is about bootleg mining in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania by miners who were out of work. No tune is noted, nor can I find any reference on the web. Any suggestions?
Thanks all.
Wishing you peace and music in 2009 and beyond.
-Tom Smith
