GUEST,Barry Disaster songs (42) Lyr Add: DREAM OF A MINER'S CHILD 01 Nov 11

A miner was leaving his home for his work,
When he heard his little child scream
He went to his bedside, his little white face
"Oh, Daddy, I've had such a dream.
I dreamt that I saw the pit all on fire,
And men struggled hard for their lives.
The scene then changed, and the top of the mine
Was surrounded by sweethearts and wives.

Don't go down the mine, Dad,
Dreams very often come true.
Daddy, you know it would break my heart
If anything happened to you.
Just go and tell my dream to your mates,
And as true as the stars above,
Something is going to happen today
Dear Daddy, don't go down the mine!"

Whilst waiting his turn with his mates to descend,
He could not banish his fear.
He returned home again to his wife and his child,
These words seem to ring in his ear.
And ere they day ended the pit was on fire,
And a score of brave men lost their lives.
He thanked God above for the dream his child had,
As once more the little one cried

"Dont go down the mine, Dad etc, etc.
