Thread Name: Coal Mining Songs
Subject: RE: Coal Mining Songs
Chris Hastings and Huw Pudner have written a song called 'Black Diamonds and Iron' about the enormous changes in the South Wales valley


'The valley's been looted
They stripped it all bare
From the Tawe and Taff
To the banks of the Dare
Black diamonds and iron
In millions of tonnes
Came from the valley
Where the river still runs'
