Thread Name: Coal Mining Songs
Subject: RE: Coal Mining Songs
Don't forget "New York Mining Disaster 1941" by The Bee Gees. If you don't think this is valid, ask Martin Carthy why he recorded a version.

There are other mining songs from non-western countries - an excellent South African one by Hugh Masakela about gold mine workers, for example.
