Thread Name: Coal Mining Songs
Subject: RE: Coal Mining Songs
I sing "i work in the Mines"-- from the anthracite region around Scranton. It's on my Folk-Legacy cd, "American Primitive." It comes from the singing of "Giant" O'Neill. It expresses some of the pride miners have about their work as well as the difficulty.
