DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Req: Springhill Miracle
From: GUEST,Karl Dallas
Date: 18 Feb 08 - 11:07 AM

At roughly the same time as Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger composed The Ballad of Springhill, I wrote a song on the same subject, which I called The Springhill Miracle - the miracle being that some men had survived after being trapped underground for over a week - "alive and defying nature's laws" as I put it in my lyric.
John Foreman, the Broadsheet King, published Ewan & Peggy's song and mine on a single broadsheet, but he hasn't got a copy. I haven't got a copy of mine but I would like to start singing it. If anyone has a copy of John's broadsheet, I'd appreciate a photocopy.
Also, I wrote a song called The Spidermen Aloft for a Unity Theatre production of a play called See a Man Falling. The lyric was published in the theatre programme. Again, John Foreman can't help. Can any Mudcat subscriber help?
My email address is, by the way. I'm always glad to hear from old friends and new.
