18 June 1984 The Battle of Orgreave continued

Harry Stone - HEARTS OF COAL

Forty years of coal-dust
Is a lot of pain to carry
It made a cripple out of Harry
But his family came and took up his tools

And they faced the Orgreave cavalry
While the world looked on and wondered
Their right to work was plundered
By the statesman-ship of fools

John Tams and Barry Coope   
Hearts of Coal
